Intel® 82566 Gb Platform LAN Connect Networking Silicon: DatasheetIntroductionThe Intel® 82566 Gigabit Ethernet Physical Layer Transceiver (PHY) is a single port component that connects to its MAC through a dedicated interconnect. The 82566 is based on Intel's Gigabit PHY technology, and supports operation at data rates of 10/100/1000 Mbps. The physical layer circuitry provides a standard IEEE 802.3 Ethernet interface for 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 1000BASE-T applications (802.3, 802.3u, and 802.3ab).This device operates with the ICH8/ICH9 chipset that incorporates and integrates the media access controller (MAC), which is referred to as the ICH8/ICH9 LAN.The 82566 is packaged in a small footprint flip chip molded matrix array package (FCMMAP) with 81 balls in a 9 x 9 array. The package size is 10 mm x 10 mm with a pitch of 1.0 mm, making it attractive for small form-factor platforms.The device interfaces with its MAC through two interfaces: Gigabit LAN Connect Interface (GLCI) and LAN Connect Interface (LCI). The GLCI is a high speed proprietary serial interface. The LCI is a low speed proprietary parallel bus. The 82566 operates using both interfaces; the GLCI for 1000 Mbps traffic and LCI for all other traffic types.Figure 1 identifies the major components of the 82566 architecture.Document ScopeThis document contains datasheet specifications for the 82566 Gigabit Platform LAN Connect (PLC), including signal descriptions, DC and AC parameters, packaging data, and pinout information.Read the full Intel® 82566 Gb Platform LAN Connect Networking Silicon datasheet.
