BCM54880 Block Diagram
The BCM54880 is a member of the Broadcom® GbE BroadR-Reach
family of copper PHY products. It includes eight complete 10/100/1000
BASE-T and BroadR-Reach transceivers integrated on a single 65 nm
CMOS chip. The BCM54880 includes eight SGMII serial media access
controller interfaces and eight copper ports, whereby each copper port
supports one, two, or four twisted-pair line connections.
BroadR-Reach technology supports both 100-meter traditional Ethernet
services and other applications that require longer than 100-meter reach or
operation over a single twisted wire pair (such as FTTC/FTTB in MTU/
MDU as well as hotels). The extended reach also broadens the range of
cable installations and can be used for new IP services and applications
such as broadband access, voice over IP (VoIP), wireless access points,
and surveillance cameras.
Building on technologies that extend the range of Ethernet over twisted
pair, Broadcom technology enables every BroadR-Reach port to also
support IEEE 802.3-compliant technologies such as 10BASE-T,
100BASE-TX, and 1000BASE-T. As a result, BroadR-Reach guarantees
interoperability and connectivity to standard 10/100/1000BASE-T devices
over distances up to 100 meters while extending 10/100 operations over
one, two, or four pairs of UTP cable for a distance of more than 1000m,
depending on the quality of the cable and number of pairs used.
Additionally, BroadR-Reach technology works in Power over Ethernet
(PoE)-enabled platforms, providing a new generation of IP services and
applications such as security camera surveillance.
BroadR-Reach technology addresses key issues that affect deployment of
IP services in today’s enterprise. For example, since many traditional
digital PBX phone systems use twisted-pair cables that do not support
standard IEEE 802.3 Ethernet PHY technology, BroadR-Reach is a good
solution for migrating to IP-based telephony systems by leveraging the
current infrastructure. Also, in new installations, some devices such as
wireless access points (WAPs) and surveillance cameras may not be
conveniently located within the standard 100-meter range of horizontal
wiring in structured cabling systems. For these applications, BroadRReach provides IT managers with additional flexibility in connecting
devices over distances that would otherwise require fiber-optic cabling
and expensive optical transceivers.
When in BroadR-Reach mode of operation, the BCM54880 can operate
full-duplex at the rate of 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps over four-pair CAT5
twisted-pair wiring.
The BCM54880 also features advanced hardware-accelerated cablechecker diagnostic software that detects cable length or cable plant
impairments. The information obtained from the diagnostic software can
be used in conjunction by the OEM software and has the intelligence to
automatically put the BCM54880 in either BroadR-Reach mode or normal
Ethernet mode of operation.
The BCM54880 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, near-end
crosstalk (NEXT), and far-end crosstalk (FEXT).
Since BroadR-Reach ports also support standard 10/100/1000BASE-T
configurations, system vendors can easily offer upgraded products with no
compromise to the features, performance, and interoperability of their
existing switch technology.
