SANTA CLARA, Calif. & NANJING, China–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aeonsemi (www.aeonsemi.com), an innovator of mixed-signal and DSP communications ICs, announced today the launch of the ChronoPHY™ series of high-performance, low-latency physical layer ethernet transceivers. The ground up architecture is designed to meet the bandwidth, synchronization, latency, and robustness requirements of modern networks that enable emerging real-time collaboration, immersive augmented and virtual reality applications. Leveraging an advanced DSP and timing architecture, these transceivers can achieve sub-nanosecond network synchronization accuracy and determinism, surpassing competing solutions by over 10 times with great power efficiency. The PHYs also integrate a SyncE jitter filtering PLL function, ensuring reliable link performance and simplified signal integrity design without the need for additional external components.
“High resolution video transmission, streaming, gaming, and AR/VR applications are fueling the demand for faster, lower-latency, and more deterministic networks,” said Yunteng Huang, CEO of Aeonsemi. “With the roll out of WiFi-6, WiFi-7 and 10G broadband access into homes and businesses, the residential and enterprise LAN infrastructure is rapidly upgrading to support multi-gigabit capabilities. The ChronoPHY™ family is specifically positioned to facilitate the adoption of these faster networks, making the convenience and efficiency improvement accessible to everyone across the economic spectrum.”
The ChronoPHY™ series is designed on TSMC’s advanced process node and employs an efficient frequency domain digital signal processing system architecture. This enables the PHYs to achieve the industry-leading cable reach and interference immunity, ensuring robust and reliable performance.
Compliant with IEEE802.3 & IEEE1588 standards, the ChronoPHY™ series is specified over the industrial temperature range of –40C to +85C with single port options housed in 7mm x 7mm and 11mm x 11mm BGA packages. Samples and evaluation kits are available now with production to start in September.
