Pericom offers specific Timing, Connectivity, and Signal Conditioning products for Ethernet based platforms and chipsets. Our LAN switch, for example, is designed to provide high performance signal switching to 2 Ethernet ports from one host. We offer 10 Gb data rate ReDrivers to enable clean high speed signaling, and we have clock generators and XO’s offering standard Ethernet base frequencies.

Ethernet is a family of computer networking technologies for local area networks (LANs) commercially introduced in 1980. Standardized in IEEE 802.3, Ethernet has largely replaced competing wired LAN technologies. Ethernet is by far the most widely deployed protocol for networking connectivity in the world. Systems communicating over Ethernet divide a stream of data into individual packets called frames. Each frame contains source and destination addresses and error-checking data so that damaged data can be detected and re-transmitted.
