EGLXT973E Datasheet – 2-port 10/100 Ethernet Transceiver

Part Number : EGLXT973E, EGLXT973QE, EGLXT973E A3

Function : Low-power, 2-port 10/100 Ethernet Transceiver

Package : PQFP 100 Pin type

Manufacturers : Cortina, Intel




The number of high-performance network applications demanding low power and design flexibility for Ethernet connectivity are growing rapidly. Applications that formerly required only single-port Ethernet connections now require access to multiple functions or even redundant (fault-tolerant) links.
Cable modems, xDSL modems, IP telephones and telecom backplanes are just a few of the applications demanding dual Ethernet connections. The Intel EGLXT973E is a dual-port 10/100Mbps Ethernet PHY transceiver providing a low-power, feature-rich solution for Ethernet networking. Expanding the industry-leading Intel portfolio of single and multi-port PHY solutions, the EGLXT973E A3 combines reliability and ease-of-use functions such as auto MDI/MDIX, tolerance to a cable discharge event (CDE), and long-distance cable support (up to 200m) for more flexibility in “less than optimal” wiring environments.
