Marvell Debuts Quad-Port Gigabit Ethernet PHY

Marvell introduced a line of single, dual, quad and octal Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) transceivers featuring low-power consumption, advanced power saving modes, and a high-level of integration. The Alaska 88E1240 is Marvell's latest pin- compatible addition to the quad-PHY family. The 88E1240 consumes less than 500mW per port in 1000BASE-T full-duplex mode, significantly lowering the thermal profile of fan-less systems.

Marvell said the active low-power consumption of the 88E1240 combined with its advanced power-saving modes, delivers a new level of energy efficiency for a new breed of cost-optimized, entry-level GbE switching platforms.
