Hauppauge, N.Y. - The LAN8710 and LAN8720 10/100 Ethernet physical layer transceivers (PHYs) from SMSC offer up to 40 percent lower power consumption than existing SMSC transceivers. According to SMSC, they are also the industry's smallest.
Primary applications include set-top boxes, digital video recorders, network printers and servers, IP and video phones, digital televisions, gaming consoles and POS terminals.
The LAN8710 and LAN8720 PHYs have integrated voltage regulators and ESD protection components. The MAC interface supports flexible I/O voltages from 3.6V to 1.6V.
Higher performance ASICs, SoCs and FPGAs, through migration to lower geometry processes, require lower I/O voltage support. The LAN8710/20 devices provide support for flexible I/O voltage to enable a highly optimized system design, and offer the flexibility of disabling on-chip regulators to reduce system power consumption.
In addition to standard features such as IEEE 802.3/802.3u compliance, UNH interoperability certification, HP Auto-MDIX support and MII/RMII interfaces, the LAN8710 and LAN8720 PHYs deliver excellent ESD Protection levels without any external protection devices.
The new PHYs also feature single 25MHz Crystal design, operation over extended commercial (0 to 85 C) and industrial (-40 to 85 C) temperature ranges, and compact 5x5mm 32QFN (LAN8710) and 4x4mm 24QFN (LAN8720) RoHS compliant packages.
SMSC provides an easy migration path from current LAN8700 transceivers to the new LAN8710 and LAN8720 transceivers with minimal redesign efforts.
The LAN8710 and LAN8710i (industrial temperature range) are available in a 5mm x 5mm x 0.9mm 32QFN lead-free package. The LAN8720 and LAN8720i (industrial temperature range) are available in a 4mm x 4mm x 0.9mm 24QFN lead-free package.
Samples are available today. Production quantities will range from $0.76 to $1.03 in 10K quantities.
