Device allows Ethernet connectivity in the harshest environments
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
