This quad-channel transceiver is designed to be used as a general purpose physical layer device (PHY) for proprietary backplanes or as a Fibre Channel or Gigabit Ethernet transceiver. As an alternate source, the FIN7216-01 offers a direct replacement while consuming less power. It offers a broad operating range (100 Mbps to 1.36 Gbps) for system flexibility and high throughput; fast lock time for more efficient switching setup; redundant serial I/O for high reliability; and high ESD protection. The FIN7216-01 offers BIST through JTAG for simplified, in-system functional testing. The device is rated at 2.2 W and can operate at low power when unused functions are disabled.
