Marvell Yukon 88E8059
PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller
with Audio Video Bridging
The Marvell® YukonTM 88E8059 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) controller supports the latest IEEE802.1 Audio Video Bridging
(AVB) standards to enable reliable, real-time audio/video transmission over Ethernet for today’s high-definition and
time-sensitive multimedia streams with perfect Quality of Service (QoS). The Yukon 88E8059 device also offers
unprecedented integration of Marvell’s marketing-leading Gigabit MAC, PHY and PCI Express technologies in a
minimal footprint in 9mm x 9mm, 64-pin QFN and 7mm x 7mm 48 QFN packages, enabling a simplified and costeffective implementation for sleek and high performance PCs and Embedded systems. Marvell offers the industry’s
most comprehensive driver suite and hardware design that result in fast time-to-markets.
