Product Details

The Intel 82546GB integrates Intels fourth-generation Gigabit MAC design, with fully integrated, physical-layer circuitry, to provide two standard IEEE 802.3 Ethernet interfaces for 1000BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 10BASE-T applications (802.3, 802.3u, 802.3ab).

The Intel 82546GBs two integrated SerDes support 1000BASE-X (802.3z). In addition, the controller provides a single, direct Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) 2.3 and PCI-X 1.0a compliant bus that operates as a single multi-function device on the bus at clock frequencies up to 133MHz.

The Intel 82546GB on-board SMBus port enables enhanced manageability and system health monitoring via the LAN. With SMBus, management packets can be routed to or from a management processor.

The Intel 82546GB Gigabit Ethernet Controller architecture is optimized to deliver both high-performance networking and PCI/PCI-X bus efficiency. The 82546GB controller handles Gigabit Ethernet traffic with low network latency and minimal internal processing overhead.

The Intel® 82546GB Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet Controller incorporates two full Gigabit Ethernet MAC and PHY layer functions and Serializer/ Deserializer (SerDes) on a single, compact component.

Packaged in a 21x21mm PBGA, the 82546GB Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet Controller provides dual port functionality without requiring additional board space for the component.

Features

  • Dual port single-chip configuration simplifies designs
