SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- The Electronic Device Group of Mitsubishi Electric & Electronics USA, Inc., today introduced the M69850, the world's first SOI-CMOS single-chip, 10 gigabit (Gbit) Ethernet physical-layer transceiver LSI(1) (LAN-PHY LSI). SOI-CMOS technology enables the M69850 to integrate XGXS(2), PCS(3), and PMA(4) functions into one chip that uses a single, 1.8-volt power supply. SOI-CMOS technology can provide faster transistors for better performance and less substrate noise for lower jitter level, as well as latch-up prevention. The M69850 is targeted to meet the industry demand to upgrade data transmission speed in local area networks (LANs) and metropolitan area networks (MANs). Designed for 10 gigabit per second (Gbps) Ethernet optical module, digital cross connect, network router, and network switch applications, the M69850 is compliant with ongoing XENPAK Multi-Source Agreement standardization and conforms to the IEEE802.3ae standard. "SOI-CMOS technology enables customers to have a more integrated, more reliable, and more cost-effective high-speed analog solution than products using gallium arsenide, bipolar, or BiCMOS technologies," said Daniel Chen, assistant vice president of high-frequency products for Mitsubishi Electric & Electronics USA, Inc.
