BCM54980 Reference Design
The BCM54980 comprises eight complete 10/100/1000BASE-T GbE
transceivers integrated on a single monolithic CMOS chip. The BCM54980
is optimized for low power and small footprint size to enable high port
density applications. By lowering system cost and reducing power
dissipation by nearly 15 percent compared to previous generation PHY
products, the BCM54980 enables a new class of cost-effective GbE
equipment, driving the delivery of GbE bandwidth to the desktop.
The BCM54980 DSP-based architecture and advanced power management
techniques combine with enhanced analog front-end design to achieve
robust and low-power operation over existing Category 5 twisted-pair
wiring. The BCM54980 architecture not only meets the requirements of
IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.3u, and IEEE 802.3ab but also maintains the
industry’s highest level of margin over IEEE requirements for echo, nearend crosstalk (NEXT), and far-end crosstalk (FEXT). Low power is the key
to implementing high-density GbE switches, and the BCM54980 has the
smallest footprint and lowest power in the industry at less than 500 mW per
port. In addition, the BCM54980 has extremely low EMI emissions, which
reduces the design constraints required to meet EMI radiation
specifications. The BCM54980 provides the highest level of external
component integration in the smallest possible package, resulting in a PBC
space savings of 40% for high-density switch applications.
The BCM54980 supports the SGMII and SerDes MAC interfaces. The
SGMII and serial SerDes interfaces are reduced pin-count (6 and 4,
respectively, versus 25) versions of the GMII. These reduced pin-count
interfaces simplify design and lower system cost by reducing the number
of layers required to route high-density solutions. In addition, these
interfaces allow fewer pins at the MAC/switch, which reduces the MAC/
switch cost by enabling smaller die sizes than would be possible with full
GMII.
This new device is the first member of Broadcom’s 90-nm GbE copper
PHY family, joining more than a dozen previous-generation quad and
single products. The 90-nm process is the optimal process that offers the
best performance, lowest cost, and lowest power for highly-integrated GbE
copper solutions. Devices based on the 90-nm process offer an excellent
long-term cost curve, enabling better cost reduction over time (compared
to older technologies) without needing to redesign or requalify a new part.
Each BCM54980 port is fully independent and has individual interface,
control, and status registers, and incorporates a number of advanced
features. A link-quality indicator LED gives installers an instant visual
indication if there is a problem with the wiring plant supporting operation
at the preferred speed, including physical wiring defects that the
BCM54980 cannot automatically correct as well as channel conditions
such as excessive cable length and return loss, crosstalk, echo, and noise.
Broadcom’s CableChecker software can be used with this device to provide
remote management of the cable and a first level of diagnostics and fault
isolation.
The BCM54980 has the industry's highest tolerance to electrostatic
discharge (ESD). This prevents ESD damage not only during
manufacturing but also during CESD events in the field. CESD is an ESD
event that occurs when an electrically charged network cable is plugged
into a network port. This is an issue that has become more prevalent with
contemporary cable installations, and the BCM54980 leads the industry in
tolerance level.
