The Broadcom® BCM54213PE is a triple-speed 1000BASE-T/100BASE-TX/10BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) transceiver integrated into a single monolithic CMOS chip.
The device performs all physical-layer functions for 1000BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 10BASE-T Ethernet on standard category 5 UTP cable.
10BASE-T can also run on standard category 3, 4, and 5 UTP.
The BCM54213PE is a highly integrated solution combining digital adaptive equalizers, ADCs, phaselocked loops, line drivers, encoders, decoders, echo cancellers, crosstalk cancellers, and all required support circuitry. Based on Broadcom’s proven digital signal processor technology, the BCM54213PE is designed to be fully compliant with RGMII, allowing compatibility with industry-standard Ethernet MACs and switch controllers.
Designed for reliable operation over worst-case category 5 cable, the BCM54213PE automatically negotiates with its link partner to determine the highest possible operating speed. The device detects and corrects most common wiring problems.
The BCM54213PE features CableChecker™ diagnostics, which detects common cable problems including shorts, opens, and cable length.
