Marvell Offers 40nm Ultra-Low Power Octal Gigabit Ethernet

Marvell introduced its "Alaska V" series of 40nm ultra-low power, eight-port, energy-efficient gigabit Ethernet transceivers incorporating Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) features based on the IEEE 802.3az standard. The 88E1680 transceiver, which is part of the Alaska V family of transceivers, delivers the lowest active power per port at 10/100/1000Mbps data rates.

The Alaska V 88E1680 transceiver supports EEE technology when interfaced with EEE-aware MAC devices and legacy devices that do not support EEE, enabling a seamless migration to standards-based EEE networking solutions. The 88E1680 transceiver, with innovative mixed-signal design techniques, offers 2x cable performance compared to IEEE 802.3 requirements, all in a small, cost-effective package. With a high level of integration and enriched features, the Alaska V 88E1680 transceiver sets a new standard in energy savings for next-generation cloud infrastructures.
