Description

The 78Q8430 is a 10/100 Fast Ethernet controller supporting multimedia offload, optimized for host processor offload and throughput enhancements for demanding multimedia applications found in set-top boxes, IP video, and broadband media appliance applications. The 78Q8430 seamlessly interfaces to non-PCI processors through a simplified pseudo-SRAM-like host bus interface supporting 32/16/8-bit data bus widths and provides support for IEEE 802.3x flow control and compliance with IEEE 802.3 and 802.3u standards.

Supporting 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX, the transceiver provides auto MDI-X cable crossover correction, autonegotiation, link configuration, and full/half-duplex support with full-duplex flow control and requires only a dual 1:1 isolation transformer for line interfacing. Incorporating numerous packet processing and IP address resolution control functions, in addition to an extensive set of error monitoring, reporting and troubleshooting features, the 78Q8430 provides optimal 10/100 Ethernet connectivity in demanding video streaming and mixed-media applications.
