Marvell Introduces the World's Smallest Gigabit Transceiver Device, Enabling the Copper Small Form Factor Pluggable (SFP) Module Market

1/7/2002 - Marvell (NASDAQ: MRVL), a technology leader in the development of extreme broadband communications solutions, today announced the industry's smallest Gigabit over copper transceiver device, enabling, for the first time, a new Gigabit Ethernet application-the 1000BASE-T small form factor pluggable (SFP) module. The Alaska® Ultra device, the 88E1011S, features physical dimensions of only 9 mm x 9 mm, or 81 mm2 of PC board (PCB) real estate, making it the only device small enough to fit into the SFP module form factor. The Alaska Ultra is nine times smaller than competing 27 mm x 27 mm (or 729 mm2 of PCB real estate) single-channel Gigabit Ethernet transceivers currently in production.
