Ethernet Technology

Qualcomm Atheros provides a broad portfolio of high-performance, low-power Ethernet solutions for the computing, networking and consumer electronics markets to serve our customers with comprehensive connectivity platforms. Our solutions consist of fast and Gigabit Ethernet PHYs, controllers and switches, and are optimized to address the growing demands for increased network capacity, latency-sensitive voice and multimedia applications in the digital home, on computing platforms and in the enterprise.

Integration + small size = big advantage

PHYs and switches from Qualcomm Atheros are among the smallest and most cost-effective solutions available. By integrating a dozen external components per PHY port (including resistors, clocks and a switching regulator), the new Ethernet solutions offer the industry’s lowest bill-of-materials (BOM) cost. The highly integrated packages also provide significantly smaller footprints and lower pin-counts than competitive solutions.
