TI Introduces Lowest Latency Ethernet PHYTER® Transceiver for the Industrial Market

Next generation device provides robustness, diagnostics and reliability for real-time applications

DALLAS, -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced the expansion of its broad Ethernet portfolio to include its next-generation single-port 10/100 Ethernet physical layer (PHY). The TLK110 offers the lowest deterministic transmit and receive latency, which provides predictable and precise control for real-time applications. For daisy-chain architectures, this fast loop time is 30-percent faster than competitive PHYs. Its programmability and strapping options cover industrial Ethernet standards such as EtherCAT, Powerlink, ProfiNET and SERCOSIII. In addition to this flexibility and best-in-class performance, the TLK110 provides error-free cable reach of 150m. To download a data sheet or order samples see:

The TLK110 is pin-to-pin compatible with the DP83848I Ethernet PHY, providing an easy upgrade path without board redesign for customers who need the additional features of the TLK110 and a multi-fab flow for logistical dual-sourced Ethernet PHYs. Whether designers need a single-port PHY (with and without IEEE 1588), dual port PHY, Gigabit PHY or MAC+PHY, TI is committed to solving industrial Ethernet challenges with devices in various temperature ranges and package options. TI's PHYTER devices also complement TI's embedded processor platforms such as Sitara(TM) ARM® microprocessors, Stellaris® ARM Cortex(TM) microcontrollers, Hercules(TM) safety microcontrollers, and TMS320C6000(TM) digital signal processors.

TLK110 key features and benefits

-- Lowest deterministic channel latency lowers system loop time with real-time accuracy.

-- Multiple fast link-up configurations (force modes) to establish fast communication.

-- Fast link loss detection time of less than 10 microseconds meets the needs of industrial Ethernet protocol standards.

-- Cable diagnostics find faults with an accuracy of +/- one meter, easing cable repair and installation and allowing real time monitoring of cable quality.

Availability and pricing

The TLK110 comes in a 48-pin, LQFP package and is in full production now. The TLK110 is available from TI and authorized distributors with the suggested resale price of $3.00 in quantities of 1,000.
