The VIA Tahoe product family comprises single chip Fast Ethernet Physical Layer and Transceiver solutions that interface to a Media Access Controller (MAC) through an MII interface ensuring the easy implementation of 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet LANs and full interoperability between products from different vendors, making it suitable for a wide range of consumer and commercial applications.
The VIA Tahoe dual-speed PHY/Transceivers support up to 8 ports configured to 10Base-T, 100Base-TX and 100Base-FX devices with full auto-negotiation and meet all applicable IEEE 802.3 standards. These VLSI devices operate at full or half duplex, and the on-chip wave shaping means that no external filters are required.
