Santa Clara, Calif. The DP83864 is a four-port GigPHYTER Gigabit Ethernet physical layer (PHY) device that is equipped with an on-chip microcontroller. By including the microcontroller, designers can add support for multiple LED control, cable diagnostics, and other emerging applications through software modifications. Each of the ICs four ports supports 10BASE-T, 100-BASE-TX, and 1000 BASE-TX operation. It interfaces with MAC devices through MII, GMII, RGMII, and SGMII interfaces. The device operates from a 1.8-V core, delivers 2.5-V tolerant I/Os, and a 292-ball PBGA package.
