TranSwitch Corp. announced the availability of its GbE PHY IP coreMystiPHY1011that puts 10Base-T, 100Base-TX and 1000Base-T functions in SoCs.

These three technologies are the de-facto standard for all Ethernet traffic over the installed base of twisted-pair cables.

"This technology is based on a complex design that requires tremendous effort and significant knowledge of DSP and mixed-signal design," said Amir Bar-Niv, executive director for systems and applications at TranSwitch, in a statement. "By licensing this IP core, customers can focus on their own core designs that require 1000Base-T PHY, resulting in a faster time-to-market with the integrated chip."

The MystiPHY1011 optimized GbE PHY IP core is a standard PHY that is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3 specifications.

The MystiPHY1011's small size, low power, multiple MAC interfaces and other features make it suitable for many applications such as Gigabit switches, network interface cards, LAN-on-motherboard (LOM), home gateway, printers and testing equipment.

TranSwitch obtained the Gigabit technology when it acquired Mysticom Ltd, the largest provider of 10/100Base-T IP cores. TranSwitch will market the MystiPHY1011 IP core in addition to its other current offering of the MystiPHY110 10 Base-T and 100BASE-TX/FX Ethernet PHY core.
