-April 02, 2017

This product is featured in EDN's Hot 100 products of 2017. See all 100 here.
A suite of 48 Gigabit Ethernet chips, Microchip’s GigEpack lineup reduces the complexity of deploying high-speed industrial, automotive, and consumer networks. The portfolio includes single-chip switches with integrated HSR/DLR redundancy, as well as automotive-grade USB 3.1 Gen 1 to Gigabit Ethernet bridge chips that support ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) and infotainment systems on a variety of physical network layers.

The GigEpack suite comprises three product families. Supporting both copper and fiber, the KSZ9477/9567/9897 switch family allows the creation of ultra-reliable networks using HSR (high-availability seamless redundancy) and DLR (device level ring) redundancy protocols. The LAN7800/LAN7850/LAN7801 bridge family enables customers to add Gigabit Ethernet to embedded processors via USB 3.1 Gen 1, USB 2.0, or HSIC (High Speed Inter-Chip) bridging to such physical layers as 1000Base-T or 100Base-T1. These products join the existing KSZ9031 family of automotive-grade Gigabit PHY transceivers.

Prices for the KSZ9477, KSZ9567, and KSZ9897 GigE switches start at $10.93, $9.14, and $6.74, respectively. Prices for the LAN7800, LAN7850, and LAN7801 GigE bridge chips start at $4.56, $4.04, and $3.75, respectively. KSZ9031 PHY devices are priced from $1.97. All prices are for lots of 1000 units.
