IRVINE, Calif. -- Broadcom Corporation (Nasdaq:BRCM), the leading provider of integrated circuits enabling high-speed broadband communications, today announced it is sampling the industry's first 0.13 micron CMOS Quad Gigabit Copper Transceiver. This new device facilitates the deployment of Gigabit Ethernet bandwidth to the desktop by doubling port density, lowering system cost, and slashing power dissipation to under 1.0 watt/port. The Broadcom(R) BCM5404 Quad Gigabit Copper Transceiver represents the fourth generation of products based upon Broadcom's field-proven Gigabit DSP architecture, and the first of its kind to utilize a state-of-the-art 0.13 micron CMOS process technology.

"Since our introduction nearly two years ago of the world's first Gigabit Copper Transceiver, Broadcom has successfully delivered and ramped to production four successive generations of Gigabit transceiver products," said Marty Colombatto, Vice President and General Manager of Broadcom's Networking Business Unit. "From the outset, we have focused on providing our customers with the lowest power, highest port density, and smallest footprint Gigabit transceivers possible. The BCM5404 represents an incredible engineering achievement, and once again demonstrates the superior technical execution and market leadership for which Broadcom is renowned."
