Teranetics, in addition to developing 10Gig Base-T PHY's, is also actively working on energy efficient ethernet PHY's which have been defined for all data and rates and PMD's (twisted pair, backplanes & optical). It is therefore a natural extension for backplane players like PLX to broaden their play in the ecosystem. PhyWorks was also acquired recently. Gennum, cited in the article above, is a Toronto-based company; may be the next acquisition? Dr. MP Divakar
