By CBR Staff Writer

Marvell has launched a suite of products for networking multichannel audio/video (A/V) over ethernet. The new portfolio includes Link Street gigabit ethernet switches 88E6350R/88E6350/88E6351, and gigabit ethernet Network Interface Controller (NIC) – the Yukon 88E8059, and Kirkwood SoC 88F6000 featuring Sheeva CPU technology.

Marvell said that the comprehensive suite of products is in support of the IEEE 802.1 A/V Bridging (AVB) standards. The AVB product suite is designed to allow delivery of time-sensitive multimedia traffic for both consumer and professional A/V applications on ethernet network. These products include switches, SOCs and a PC network interface controller.

The AVB product suite can be used in platforms including, switches, gateways, routers, PCs, NAS systems and consumer electronics devices that are now adding ethernet connectivity, the company added.

According to Marvell, the Link Street 88E6350R is a 7-port gigabit ethernet switch integrating five triple speed 10/100/1000 PHYs and two RGMII ports. The 88E6350 provides support for GMII interfaces and RGMII. The 88E6351 is pin compatible to the 88E6350 and adds synchronous ethernet support.

The company said that the Yukon 88E8059 is a new 55nm gigabit ethernet LAN controller for Clients and embedded systems. It is part of the Yukon LAN controller family of products found in the PC platforms.

In addition, the Kirkwood 88F6000 series of SoCs are designed with I/O integration enabling them a choice for applications, such as digital home media servers. These SoCs allow direct integration of wireless chipsets, USB peripherals, VoIP devices, hard disks, and other components that are required for consumer electronics.

Ali Khan, director of marketing with the communications and computing business unit at Marvell, said: We also congratulate AVnu for bringing industry wide collaboration together to support the years of standards development in the IEEE AVB committee. Marvell sees this as the next phase in the Ethernet evolution.
