The Alaska® portfolio of PHY transceivers, high-speed line cards and DSPs for active electrical cables (AECs) offers optimized form factors, multiple port and cable options, efficient power consumption and simple plug-and-play functionality.
Marvell continuously delivers the most advanced and complete PHY products to the infrastructure market. Marvell’s transceivers are utilized for a wide array of enterprise, carrier, small medium business, industrial and cloud data center applications.
The Alaska® F and Alaska G families of Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet physical layer (PHY) transceivers are built on Marvell’s legacy of unique, best-in-class features that enable customers to expand their Ethernet applications. With efficient design and a high level of integration, Alaska F and Alaska G PHY devices offer low power dissipation, small form factors, high performance and advanced feature sets.
Alaska F octal-port devices lead the industry with the lowest power consumption, resulting in reduced fan requirements, while the Alaska G devices allow thermal-efficient packages for fanless, heat sink-less designs. Both PHY families feature Marvell’s Virtual Cable Tester® (VCT) technology, allowing IT managers and networking equipment manufacturers to remotely analyze the quality and attributes of the cable, avoiding unnecessary equipment returns and on-site service calls.
