Marvell AQrate Multi-Gig PHYs

Leading the upgrade cycle beyond gigabit

Marvell AQRATE Multi-Gig Ethernet PHYs

Marvell AQrate PHYs are low-power, full-reach, Multi-Gig (5GBASE-T/2.5GBASE-T/1000BASE-T/100BASE-TX) Ethernet PHY transceivers. These high-performance devices enable the broad-based market adoption of Multi-Gig network connectivity through existing Cat 5e and Cat 6 cabling infrastructure. AQrate PHYs are compatible with the IEEE 802.3bz standard PHY Specification to perform all the physical layer functions that are required to implement 5GBASE-T/2.5GBASE-T/1000BASE-T/100BASE-TX transmission over more than 100 meters of twisted pair cabling.

AQrate devices are designed to support the introduction of higher-speed wired connectivity solutions for enterprise, data center, SMB/SOHO carrier and industrial/scientific/medical markets (ISM). The AQrate PHY family integrates such features as Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), Synchronous Ethernet (Sync-E), Precision Time Protocol (PTP)/1588v2, supports all PoE standards up to 100W, and supports jumbo packets up to 16KB in all operating modes.
