APRIL 22, 2010 -- Vitesse Semiconductor Corp. has introduced the VSC8512, a 12-port Gigabit Ethernet PHY device with dual media copper and fiber support, integrated with Vitesse’s new EcoEthernet 2.0.

EcoEthernet 2.0 delivers features such as ActiPHY automatic link-power down and PerfectReach intelligent cable algorithm, along with IEEE 802.3az idle power savings, temperature monitoring, smart fan control, and adjustable LED brightness.

The VSC8512 achieves its power dissipation of 370 mW/port for 1000BASE-T copper and 150 mW for fiber, not only through design techniques in a 65-nm CMOS process, but also through support of both low pin count SGMII and QSGMII interfaces.

Samples of the VSC8512 will be generally available in the second quarter of calendar 2010. Unit price in quantities of 10,000 is $26.76.
