Realtek Single-Chip PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Controller Wins Best Choice of COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2007 Award


HSINCHU, Taiwan – June 5, 2007 – One of the world’s leading IC design houses, Realtek Semiconductor Corp., today announced that its RTL8111C Single-Chip PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Controller has won “Best Choice of COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2007 Award”, an award recognized and given by an evaluation committee comprised of experts from the industry, academia, media, and government. Competing with other worthy products from Computex exhibitors, the Realtek RTL8111C stood out for its innovation in breaking the technical power barrier; consuming less than 600mW in maximum performance state and achieving a total power consumption 60% less than competing products, making it ideal for mobile and portable devices.

RTL8111C technological innovations include:

  • World's first Single-Chip PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Controller with a built-in high-power-efficiency switching regulator.
  • World's first dynamic detection of cable length and dynamic adjustment of power required for the detected cable length.
  • Realtek's Deep Slumber Mode (DSM) greatly cuts power consumption when the network cable is disconnected from the RTL8111C.

“With the increasing use of high-performance mobile and portable devices, power and cooling concerns have become a major factor in new product design. The launch of the RTL8111C Gigabit Ethernet low-power solution enables a faster and ‘greener’ network within today's digital home and office”, said Jessy Chen, Vice President and Spokesman for Realtek Semiconductor Corp. “The new Realtek Integrated Single-Chip PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Controller offers low power consumption, low heat output, high integration, high performance, and high adaptability, all within a compact package size, providing a very competitive Gigabit Ethernet Controller solution”.

The RTL8111CP is another exciting new-generation product from Realtek. The RTL8111CP supports Alert Specification Format (ASF) 2.0. ASF defines remote control and alerting interfaces to provide system manageability in commercial PC environments. The ASF capability minimizes on-site I/T maintenance, improves system availability, and also allows remote power management.

The RTL8111C/RTL8111CP will be shown at the Realtek booth, located in South Lounge (T3F1) at Computex, Taipei, from June 5-9, alongside a full line of exciting products and solutions:

  • IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n Wireless NIC & Router SoCs
  • Gigabit Ethernet Switch Controllers
  • ADSL2+/IAD Chipsets
  • DTV Demodulators
  • LCD TV/Monitor Controllers & Media Codecs
  • Ultra-Wideband Chipsets
  • Audio Codecs for Portable Devices
  • High Definition Audio Codecs with Multi-Streaming Technology
  • Advanced Card Reader Controllers
  • Clock Generators for Wide Range of Chipsets
