ICPLUS Ethernet interface systems


Micros, a distributor of electronic components, offers, among others Wide range of Ethernet interfaces produced by IC PLUS. This type of systems are perfect for surveillance cameras, industrial applications, home and building automation and many others.

The IP101A LF chip is compatible with IEEE 802. 3/802. 3u standards. It has one port and can work at 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps. It supports the Auto MDI/MDIX function, which enables simple network installation and reduces the cost of infrastructure maintenance. It can also work with MII/SNI and RMII interfaces, allowing connection to different types of 10/100 Mbps MAC controllers. It is suitable for UTP Category 5 twisted pair connections. The sister system, IP101G, also allows connections via fiber optic cable. It is available in IP101GA (LQFP48 housing) and IP101GR (QFN-32 housing).

IP113C is a 10/100BASE-TX to 100BASE-FX or 100BASE-TX to 100BASE-FX converter. It also includes a 2-port switch controller. It can transmit very long data packets - up to 1600 bytes. Supports store and forward mode, but also modified cut-through and pure converter mode. The IP113F version also supports remote management functions via the SMI port, such as remote desktop and loopback testing.

Interfaces with more ports The IP175DLF interface chip connects a 6-port switch controller, SSRAM and 5 10/100 Ethernet transceivers. It contains rich functionality, among others router application, firewall, IEEE 802. 1Q, IGMP ear filtering and Quality of Service (QoS) features. The sister system, IP175G, provides very low power consumption - at full load only 0. 45 W. IP175G supports 5 100BaseTX ports, while IP175GH supports 4 100BaseTX and 1 100BaseFX port.

The IP178 interfaces have up to 8 Ethernet 10/100 ports, SSRAM memory, and an 8-port switch controller. Each transceiver is compliant with IEEE 802. 3, 802. 3u and 802. 3x specifications. The IP178D version supports QoS features such as: 802. 1p, DiffServ, TCP/UDP port number and high priority port. It also has two ports to which the signal can be connected via a fibre-optic cable (6 and 7). Sister IP178G ensures low power consumption. At full load (8 ports, 100 Mbps each), the power consumption is only 0. 95 W. It is also characterized by short on/off times with just one button, as well as the possibility of a complete self-test.

The IP3210 chip combines a 32-bit RISC core, 5-port Ethernet switch and packet buffer. It's a cheap chip, ideal for use in an IP router. Four Ethernet ports can be used for LAN and one for WAN. Built-in NAT/NAPT engine allows packets to be transferred via LAN-WAN and WAN-LAN.
