This product is covered by one or more of the following patents:
US5,307,459, US5,434,872, US5,732,094, US6,570,884, US6,115,776, and US6,327,625.
The Realtek RTL8211BG is a highly integrated Ethernet transceiver that complies with 10Base-T, 100Base-TX, and 1000Base-T IEEE 802.3 standards. It provides all the necessary physical layer functions to transmit and receive Ethernet packets over CAT 5 UTP cable or CAT 3 UTP (10Mbps only) cable.
The RTL8211BG uses state-of-the-art DSP technology and an Analog Front End (AFE) to enable high-speed data transmission and reception over UTP cable. Functions such as Crossover Detection & Auto-Correction, polarity correction, adaptive equalization, cross-talk cancellation, echo cancellation, timing recovery, and error correction are implemented in the RTL8211BG to provide robust transmission and reception capabilities at 10Mbps, 100Mbps, or 1000Mbps.
Data transfer between MAC and PHY is via the Reduced Gigabit Media Independent Interface (RGMII) and Gigabit Media Independent Interface (GMII), for 1000Base-T, and Media Independent Interface (MII) for 10Base-T/100Base-TX.

In addition, it can be used in any embedded system with an Ethernet MAC that needs a UTP physical connection.
