RTL8218B-VC-CG

INTEGRATED 10/100/1000 OCTAL GIGABIT ETHERNET TRANSCEIVER

General Description

The RTL8218B-VC integrates quad independent 10/100/1000M Ethernet transceivers into a single IC, and performs all the physical layer (PHY) functions for 1000Base-T, 100Base-TX, and 10Base-T Ethernet on category 5 UTP cable except 1000Base-T half-duplex. 10Base-T functionality can also be achieved on standard category 3 or 4 cable.

Each of the four independent transceivers features an innovative QSGMII for reduced PCB traces. All transceivers can communicate with the MAC simultaneously through the QSGMII interface.

Features

  • Qctal-port integrated 10/100/1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet transceiver
  • Each port supports full duplex in 10/100/1000M mode (half duplex is only supported in 10/100M mode)
  • Supports RSGMII-plus (5Gbps serial high speed interface) in 10/100/1000 mode
  • Supports QSGMII (5Gbps serial high speed interface) in 10/100/1000 mode
  • Supports IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE)
  • Supports crossover detection and auto correction in 10Base-T/100Base-T

Applications

  • QSGMII Phyceiver for eight ports 1000Base-T
