Product Summary

The CX82100-41 is an integrated physical layer transceiver or PHY. It is designed to use existing ac electrical wiring within the home as a networking physical medium. The PHY’s robust performance in the electrically noisy power line channel is due to the use of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM). The CX82100-41’s OFDM technology finds the low noise, low attenuation portions of the spectrum available to it and continues data transmission. The device operates on both +1.8 V and +3.3 V supplies and is packaged in a 144-pin Low Quad Flat Pack (LQFP). The applications of the CX82100-41 include: Residential gateways and home routers, Network home or small office PCs, Enable no wire installation networking for information appliances, LAN gaming, Share DSL or cable modem access, MDU/MTU applications, Embedded applications.


CX82100-41 absolute maximum ratings: (1)Core Supply Voltage VDD_C: -0.35 to +1.95 VDC; (2)I/O Supply Voltage VDD_IO: -0.35 to +3.65 VDC; (3)Input Voltage VIN: -0.35 to (VDD +0.35) VDC; (4)Storage Temperature Range TSTG: -55 to +125 ℃; (5)Analog Inputs VIN: -0.35 to (VDDA + 0.35) VDC; (6)Voltage Applied to Outputs in High Impedance(Off) State VHZ: -0.35 to (VDDA +0.35) VDC.


CX82100-41 features: (1)Single-chip powerline networking controller with IEEE802.3u MII interface; (2)Implements the HomePlug Powerline Alliance Industry Specification V1.0; (3)General purpose 7-wire serial PHY data interface; (4)Selectable MDI/SPI PHY management interface; (5)Up to 14 Mbps data rate on the powerline; (6)Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) with patented signal processing techniques for high data reliability in noisy media conditions; (7)Intelligent channel adaptation maximizes throughput under harsh channel conditions; (8)Integrated quality-of-service (QoS) features such as prioritized random access, contention-free access, and segment bursting; (9)56-bit DES Link Encryption with key management for secure powerline communications; (10)EEPROM interface for fast access to configuration parameters allows system designs to leverage standard Ethernet drivers.
