Broadcom BCM54213PE RGMII Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver

Broadcom BCM54213PE RGMII Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver is a triple-speed 1000BASE-T/100BASE-TX/10BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) transceiver integrated into a single monolithic CMOS chip. The BCM54213PE performs all physical-layer functions for 1000BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 10BASE-T Ethernet on standard category 5 UTP cable. 10BASE-T can also run on standard category 3, 4, and 5 UTP. The BCM54213PE is a highly integrated solution, combining digital adaptive equalizers, ADCs, phase-locked loops, line drivers, encoders, decoders, echo cancellers, crosstalk cancellers, and all required support circuitry.

Based on Broadcom's digital signal processor technology, the BCM54213PE is designed to be fully compliant with RGMII, allowing compatibility with industry-standard Ethernet MACs and switch controllers.

Designed for reliable operation over worst-case category 5 cable, the BCM54213PE automatically negotiates with its link partner to determine the highest possible operating speed. The device detects and corrects the most common wiring problems. The BCM54213PE also features CableChecker™ diagnostics, which detects common cable problems including shorts, opens, and cable length.

The Broadcom BCM54213PE RGMII Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver is offered in a compact, 36-pin QFN (Quad Flat No-Lead) package.
