TI Showcases New Ethernet PHYs, Boosts Factory Automation Systems

By CIOReview | Monday, November 30, 2015

DALLAS, TX: With an aim to deliver high electrostatic discharge (ESD) industrial gigabit Ethernet physical layers (PHYs), Texas Instruments unveils DP83867 series comprising of six devices for enhanced functioning of factory automation systems, motor drives, and measurement equipment.

Meeting the electromagnetic interface (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) standards, the DP83867 has also passed the ISO/IEC 8kV ISO testing. It comes in 200m and 140mm cables with overnight error free data transmission. The highlights of the new release include latency as low as 400 nanoseconds at 1,000 Mbps reducing controller cycle times improving real time performance of Ethernet connections; ESD protection of more than 8kV protecting Industry 4.0 systems from high voltage faults and EMI mitigation opening doors of production by  providing more design headroom.

In addition, TI’s new release saves power by offering active power consumption of less than 460 mW and offers a scalable range of temperatures from -40o C to 105oC, allowing designers to adapt one design for multiple temperature environments. It kickstarts the designing process with its Gigabit Ethernet reference design comprising of Sitara AM335x processor with integrated Ethernet Media access control (MAC) and switch.
