Vitesse Optimizes Ethernet Transceivers for Mobile Backhaul

Vitesse Semiconductor introduced a version of its SimpliPHY Quad PHY-layer device that is optimized for wireless base stations and mobile backhaul, which require timing synchronization across links.

The VSC8662, like the company's other EcoEthernet PHY-layer devices, supports AutoMedia Sense to detect and configure ports for fiber or copper; and ActiPHY power saving mode, which reduces power on inactive ports by up to 80-percent from a bidirectional full-speed mode.
