Broadcom Introduces 40nm 10GbE SFP+ PHYs

Broadcom announced 40 nanometer (nm) quad-channel 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) physical layer (PHY) devices, offering power consumption savings of approximately 30 percent over competing 65nm CMOS solutions while enabling the convergence of 10GbE and Fibre Channel equipment in the data center.

The new BCM84750 series of quad all-DSP 10GbE PHYs, which use the company's digital signal processing (DSP) technology, provides an upgrade path from 1 Gigabit Ethernet (1GbE) to 10GbE and beyond, up to 40GbE. http://www.broadcom.comhttp://
