Microchip’s PCIe 3.1 Ethernet Bridges Save Power for Embedded and Automotive Platforms

February 15, 2019 Laura Dolan

CHANDLER, AZ. Microchip Technology Inc.’s PCIe 3.1 Low-Power Sub-State provides another option among (LPSS) L1.1 and L1.2 for power savings. The LAN7430 Ethernet bridge supplies integrated power, clocks and an Ethernet physical (PHY) interface and the LAN7431 has Reduced Gigabit Media-Independent Interface (RGMII) for alternative PHYs and switches.

The new PCIe Ethernet bridges provide:

  • design confidence through product longevity
  • worldwide technical support
  • design review services of final designs and fully released drivers for Linux or Windows operating systems

“In a market where many vendors are either announcing end of life on a current product or sending messages that indicate potential longevity issues, Microchip is stepping in to meet customer demand,” said Charles Forni, director of Microchip’s USB and networking business unit. “The new devices also meet customer requirements of PCIe 3.1, low-power sub-states for power saving that is important in automotive, but especially so for hand-held or single-board computers in industrial applications.”
