Realtek Green Power Saving Products Win‘Taiwan Green Classics Award 2011’

2011/10/28 Power Saving Products That Meet High Performance Requirements

HSINCHU, Taiwan – October 28, 2011 – One of the world’s leading IC design houses, Realtek Semiconductor Corp., today announced that three of its green power saving products have won a prestigious ‘Taiwan Green Classics Award 2011’; an award recognized and given by an evaluation committee comprised of experts from academia, government, and research institutes. Realtek stood out for its environmentally-responsible products that offer high power-saving as well as high performance.
Integrated 10/100/1000M Ethernet Controller (RTL8111FR)
The Energy Efficient ultra-low power single-chip RTL8111FR provides easy-to use single-step wake up of a remote computer via the internet, making it the perfect choice for low power consumption Remote Wake up/Access cloud computing.
Power Saving Features:
  • Supports IEEE 802.3az (Energy Efficient Ethernet: EEE)
  • Complies with PCI-Express ASPM L0s/L1 and CLKREQ power-saving mechanism
  • Supports Realtek ‘RealWoW!’. This technology allows PCs to reduce power consumption by remaining in a low-power sleeping state, whilst still being available at any time from any location with internet access
  • Supports Window’s 7 Protocol offload ECMA (European Computer Manufacturers Association) proxy for sleeping host standard
  • Comprehensive Task Offload; supports IPv4/IPv4 Checksum, Largesend, Giantsend, and RSS offload
IEEE 802.11n 150Mbps Wireless AP/Router (RTL8196C + RTL8188RE)
The RTL8196C+RTL8188RE 802.11n 1TX/1RX 150Mbps AP/Router with built-in 5 port switch features a Realtek Active-ECO power saving mode, and will dynamically enter various power-down stages based on the network traffic flow, ensuring power consumption is one of the lowest in the AP/Router industry. The RTL8196C+RTL8188RE AP/Router power consumption is so low that it can operate using only USB bus power (no external power required).
Power Saving Features:
  • Operates on USB Bus or external power
  • Supports IEEE 802.3az power-down when there is no network traffic, and also supports Realtek’s ‘Green Ethernet’ (reduces power to suit cable length for maximum performance with minimum power use)
IEEE802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz 1T1R WLAN Single-Chip Controller (RTL8188CE/RTL8188CUS)
The RTL8188C will automatically reduce power consumption depending on traffic flow and distance. It can maintain a wireless connection even when the system is in ‘hibernate’ state, and can promptly respond to local or remote wake up signals.
Power Saving Features:
  • Supports Wake-on-WLAN
  • Embeds an internal switching regulator to enhance power supply efficiency
  • Auto RF power amplifier and smart power training algorithm
  • ECMA Network Proxy function

“Our combination of complete feature set, high-performance, and eco-friendly green power saving features make Realtek the compelling choice for ‘Green’ solutions”, said Jessy Chen, Vice President and Spokesman for Realtek Semiconductor Corp. “With today’s focus on reducing carbon footprints, Realtek’s products run at minimum power consumption and with no loss of performance”.
