The AQC107 and AQC108 support 5 and 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet over copper, or 2.5/5GBASE-T, and are compliant with the NBASE-T specification and the new IEEE 802.3bz standard that was formally ratified in September 2016.
In addition, both devices also support backward compatibility with 100MbE and Gigabit Ethernet. The AQC107 has the extra feature of supporting up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet, or 10GBASE-T, on Cat6A copper cables, complying with the IEEE standard 802.3an.
“We are now delivering the last piece of the puzzle in Enterprise and SMB networks, the Multi-Gigabit client connectivity,” said Kamal Dalmia, Sr. VP Sales & Marketing at Aquantia.
“Targeting the hundreds of millions of high-performance machines selling every year worldwide and their upgrade to the Multi-Gig speeds is exciting and has caught the attention of major OEMs.”
Both devices are sampling now with production release scheduled for Q1-2017.
