Applied Micro Introduces APM9689x, Triveni Family of Low Power 10GBASE-T PHYs ICs
The APM9689x product family is the industry’s smallest dual and quad port, low power 100/1000/10GBASE-T physical layer ICs (PHYs) with MACsec (Media Access Control Security engine) and energy saving modes such as EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) and WOL(Wake-on-LAN). Triveni is the first 10GBASE-T PHY to cancel interference due to walkie-talkies, cell phones and other wireless devices to solve a critical technology challenge for robust, high-speed Ethernet connections for the data center. The 10GBASE-T technology provides up to 100m of data center cabling and offers a lower cost alternative to top-of-rack and short-reach optical solutions.

AppliedMicro’s Triveni family is addressing this problem by employing patent pending EMI cancellation techniques that would prevent a 10GBASE-T link from dropping in the presence of RF interference created by overhead air traffic communications, television signals and walkie talkies. The Triveni family offers an industry-leading power dissipation of approximately 3.5W at full 10Gbps rate while operating in 100m mode on a CAT6A cable. Dynamic power scaling further reduces the power for shorter cable reaches and intra-rack applications. The industry’s smallest footprint of 21×21 mm for the dual and 27×27 mm for the quad make Triveni solutions ideal for network interface card/host bus adapter (NIC/HBA), LAN-on-Motherboard (LOM) or high-density switch card applications.
