05-03-2015 | Texas Instruments | Semiconductors

As the number of applications requiring Ethernet connectivity continues to increase application requirements continue to change. In response, Texas Instruments (TI) has designed the DP83848 to allow Ethernet connectivity in the harshest environments. The device meets IEEE 802.3u standards over a MIL temperature range of -55C to 125C and is ideal for harsh environments for example wireless remote base stations, automotive, transportation and industrial control applications. The DP83848 is a highly reliable, feature rich robust device which includes enhanced ESD protection, MII and RMII for maximum flexibility in MPU selection all in a 48-pin PQFP package. The DP83848 features integrated sublayers to support both 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX Ethernet protocols, which ensures compatibility and interoperability with all other standards based Ethernet solutions, says the company.
