Realtek’s Single Chip 5+2-PORT 10/100/1000M Ethernet Switch Controller Receives ‘Innovative Product Award 2010’

2010/12/13 HSINCHU, Taiwan – December 13, 2010 – Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 2379.TW), one of the world’s leading network and multimedia IC providers, today announced that its RTL8367M-GR single chip 5+2-PORT 10/100/1000M Ethernet Switch Controller has received an ‘Innovative Product Award 2010’ from the Hsinchu Science Park Administration.

The RTL8367M-GR is a low-power-consumption Ethernet switch, and was the first Gigabit Ethernet switch chip to implement the power-saving IEEE 802.3az standard (Energy Efficient Ethernet: EEE). EEE defines a mechanism that allows individual RTL8367M-GR ports to enter a low power idle state. In this state, unnecessary TX/RX circuitry is turned off to reduce power consumption and provide a more energy efficient Ethernet. The RTL8367M-GR also supports IGMP v1/v2/v3, VLAN translation, double VLAN tagging, ACL, loop detection/prevention, and includes a built-in MCU. It offers advanced Quality of Service and Network management functions.

“Demand for environmentally-responsible products that are designed for power saving as well as high performance has increased significantly. Staying on the technology leading edge helps Realtek to design and develop competitive products to meet this growing demand”, said Realtek’s Executive Vice President Jessy Chen. “Our combination of complete feature set, high-performance, and eco-friendly power-saving features make Realtek the compelling choice for Gigabit Ethernet switch solutions”.
