HSINCHU, Taiwan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Faraday Technology Corporation (TWSE: 3035), a leading ASIC design service and IP provider, announced that its silicon-proven Gigabit Ethernet PHY on UMC’s 28HPC+ process and is now available for new SoC ASIC designs and IP licensing. This new IP, based on a 28nm node, offers the advantages of low power consumption and high performance. Combined with Faraday’s networking solutions, it can facilitate the efficient development of a wide range of applications such as industrial switches, home gateways, xPON, smart home appliances, access layer switches, routers and factory automation.
Faraday’s recently released Gigabit Ethernet PHY offers both 1000BASE-T copper media access and 100BASE-FX optical media access. It can implement a 3.3V GbE PHY using 1.8V IO which makes this IP easily integrated into the low-power 28HPC + 1.8V SoC platform. This GbE PHY also uses DSP-based filtering to achieve superior anti-interference performance. Additionally, the solution supports both flip-chip and wire-bond layouts to meet customer’s package requirements for high-performance SoCs or cost-effective applications.
“Faraday’s Gigabit PHY and Fast Ethernet solutions have accumulated extensive mass production experiences in networking and industrial applications through our SoC ASIC designs and IP licensing activities,” said Flash Lin, COO of Faraday Technology. . “We believe that the new transceiver on the 28HPC+ process will be a unique in-demand solution. Faraday will continue to invest in and deliver the essential building blocks for multiple customer market segments,” he added.
