DSL Chipset delivers broadband over installed copper cabling.

October 29, 2014

Built on 28 nm process technology, BCM65200 DSP and BCM65900 AFE VDSL Chipset offers solution for high-density G.vector DSLAMs as well as G.fast-based fiber-to-the-distribution point architectures. Chipset incorporates up to 36 lines of VDSL2 or 6 lines of G.fast, plus high-speed vector interfaces that eliminate need for external PHY and framing devices. Backward-compatible to existing VDSL/ADSL technologies, BCM65200/900 lets operators deploy G.fast to customers in same system as VDSL2. Read More

Quad-Port Low-Power Gearbox PHY supports 20 Gbps I/O designs.

October 14, 2014

Optimized for use with StrataXGS® Tomahawk™ switches, 28 nm BCM82764 comes in 19 x 19 mm SFF package designed to interconnect with QSFP modules. This high-density gearbox physical layer transceiver (PHY) converts 2 x 20 Gbps switch signaling to standard 40G Ethernet at 4 x 10 Gbps. While integrated module controls facilitate routing congestion on high-density PCBs, companion PHY lets end-users optionally provide legacy 40 GbE ports while utilizing full bandwidth of switch.
