Vitesse releases two dual-port Gigabit Ethernet modules

February 182015

February 18, 2015 - Vitesse Semiconductor announced availability of VSC8502RD and VSC8502RD-VR dual-port Gigabit Ethernet (GE) PHY modules. The dual-port copper, four-layer PCBs can be used for

Industrial-IoT (IIoT), including industrial process control, smart-grid energy distribution, transportation, factory automation & mission critical applications.

The VSC8502RD and VSC8502RD-VR have  a dual-port GE transceiver with Synchronous Ethernet, Wake-on-LAN and VeriPHY functionality. The device’s highly thermal-efficient packaging make it an ideal choice for fanless design enclosures. The voltage-mode line driver architecture with integrated line side termination resistors conserve both power and printed circuit board space while offering a lower EMI signature vs. current-mode line drivers.

The VSC8502RD reference design has been fully UNH-IOL compliance test validated. The VSC8502RD-VR reference design employs integrated voltage regulators, enabling Vitesse’s VSC8502 (as well as the pin-compatible, single port VSC8501) GE PHY to run from a single 3.3V power supply.

Both devices are available in commercial and industrial temperature versions.
