Intel® 82545GM Gigabit Ethernet Controller: Product Brief

Product Overview

The Intelligent Way to Connect
• Footprint compatibility allows for flexible designs
• Reduced power usage and heat generation for lower system costs and higher density
• Enhanced manageability and system health monitoring with ASF 1.0 and SMBus 2.0

The Intel®82545GM Gigabit Ethernet Controller incorporates integrated Gigabit Ethernet MAC and PHY layer functions and Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) in a single, compact component. Packaged in a 21x21mm TFBGA, the Intel® 82545GM Gigabit Ethernet Controller is physically and electrically compatible with the Intel® 82546GBDual Port Gigabit Ethernet Controller, allowing for a flexible, single-port or dual-port, multipurpose design.

The Intel 82545GM integrates Intel’s fourth-generation Gigabit MAC design with fully integrated, physical-layer circuitry to provide a standard IEEE 802.3 Ethernet interface for1000BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 10BASE-Tapplications (802.3, 802.3u, 802.3ab). For Ethernet on the backplane and fiber-optic applications, the Intel 82545GM’s integrated SerDes supports1000BASE-X (802.3z). In addition, the controller provides a direct Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) 2.3 and PCI-X 1.0a compliant bus at clock frequencies up to 133MHz.

The Intel 82545GM on-board SMBus port enables enhanced manageability and system health monitoring via the LAN: management packets can be routed to or from a management processor. The SMBus port enables implementation of industry standards such as IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface). In addition, ASF1.0 (Alert Standard Format) circuitry provides alerting and remote-control capabilities with standardized interfaces.
