Advanced Digital Logic (ADL) (San Diego, CA) has announced the release of its
ADLLAN PC/104-Plus Ethernet LAN. This PC/104-Plus expansion board is
available with either a single 1GB LAN Port or dual 1GB LAN Port. The Intel
82541ER Gigabit Ethernet Controller provides optimized Gigabit networking for
PCI designs. This efficient controller, with enhanced power management,
consumes less than 1.0W of power at Gigabit speeds. When no signal is
detected on the wire, the controller reduces power consumption by switching
to 100 to 10Mbps and powering down the physical-layer circuitry (PHY). Jumbo
framing up to 16KB is supported for networks supporting jumbo frames. The
Intel 82541ER combines Intel's fifth-generation Gigabit MAC design with fully
integrated state-of-the-art PHY technology, which meets or exceeds IEEE
802.3ab specifications for Bit Error Rate performance.
This week’s Question: The Department of Energy (DOE) has set a goal of building a battery that stores energy for less than $100 per kilowatt-hour, making stored wind and solar energy competitive with energy produced from traditional power plants....
