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.
