Broadcom announces first 40GbE quad port gearbox PHY chip

Monday 6 October 2014 | 15:31 CET | News
Broadcom has introduced what it has described as the industry's first 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) gearbox physical layer transceiver (PHY) chip. The company said the new chip had been optimised for use with its new StrataXGS Tomahawk switch series and worked by converting 20 Gbps signals to multiple lanes running at 10 Gbps. It added that the new low power PHY provided a fully standard-compliant interface to some of the most widely used 40G Ethernet PMDs including CR4, LR4 and SR4 links.
