Dual-Speed Fast Ethernet Transceiver
The LXT970A is an enhanced derivative of the LXT970 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet PHY Transceiver that supports selectable driver strength capabilities and link-loss criteria. The LXT970A supports 100BASE-TX, 10BASE-T, and 100BASE-FX applications. It provides a Media Independent Interface (MII) for easy attachment to 10/100 Media Access Controllers (MAC)s and a pseudo-ECL interface for use with 100BASE-FX fiber networks.
