Keywords:10GbE? PHY device? infrastructure fiber?

Broadcom Corp.'s BCM8727 dual 10GbE SFI-to-XAUI PHY and BCM8750 dual 10GbE SFI-to-XFI PHY are DSP-based, low-power, dual 10Gbit Ethernet SFP+ PHY devices in 65nm CMOS. The devices are designed to enable a low-cost fiber infrastructure upgrade path from 1GbE to 10GbE.

Features include DSP-based electronic dispersion compensation equalizer technology, multitap transmit pre-emphasis to compensate for FR-4 board material loss in line card applications, backward compatibility using existing 1GbE SFP modules.
