LAN874XA Family
Small-Footprint, 10/100 PHY Family
Featuring Energy Efficient Ethernet and Wake-On-LAN
Summary
Microchip’s LAN8740A, LAN8741A and
LAN8742A are the latest generation of
low-power, 10/100 Fast Ethernet PHYs
featuring Energy Efficient Ethernet (IEEE 802.3az) and
Wake-On-LAN functionality, which provides system sleep
modes for improved power savings. The LAN874XA family
features deterministic loop back delay, assuring real-
time system performance as well as cable diagnostics
which reduce network installation costs. All devices are
available in both commercial (0º to 70ºC) and industrial
(−40º to 85ºC) temperature ranges. The LAN874XA
family is well-suited for set-top box, PVR/DVR, industrial
and test/measurement instrumentation applications.
Additionally, these devices support auto-negotiation, auto-
polarity correction, HP Auto-MDIX* and are compliant
with IEEE 802.3 and 802.3u standards. Microchip also
offers its complimentary and confidential LANCheck®
online design review services to customers who select our
products for their application design-in.**

Key Features Benefi ts
Energy Effi cient
Ethernet
(IEEE 802.3az)
When used with an Energy Effi cient
Ethernet MAC, LAN8740A and
LAN8741A detect when no activity
is occurring, signal the MAC to enter
a low power mode and enable low
latency recovery. Reduces the duty
cycle of trasmission by 99% during
idle periods.
Wake-On-LAN
Allows the SoC’s integrated MAC
to be powered down while system
retains the ability to wake from
select activity
Power management
features
Energy detect power-down reduces
power usage when the Ethernet cable
is unplugged
Cable diagnostics
Detects and reports cable shorts,
opens and measure of cable length
for proactive system maintenance
Deterministic latency Assures precision timing in
industrial applications
Single crystal for
RMII mode
LAN874XA can generate a 50 MHz
clock from a 25 MHz crystal, if
required, reducing BOM and overall
system cost
Industrial temperature
(−40° to 85°C) range
options available
Designed to perform in rugged
industrial environments
*HP Auto-MDIX eliminates the need for special “crossover” cables when connecting LAN devices together.
