EVB1053

The EVB1053-HOME-MXL board is a tool to evaluate the KD1053 Gigabit Ethernet POF Transceiver IC (7 mm x 7 mm, 56-pin, QFN package) from KDPOF, together with the FB01GKAR FOT from Firecomms, for home networking applications. It is an Ethernet switch with two 1000/100BASERHA (optical Ethernet over POF) ports and two 1000/100/10BASE-T ports (copper Ethernet). 

Based on the GSW120 Gigabit Ethernet switch part from Maxlinear, this new board enables a more affordable BOM and extended daisy-chain functionality, as demanded in common home-networking and small-office environments. 

The companion EVB1053-HOME-MXL Reference Design provides guidelines for design and evaluation capabilities in a flexible platform, enabling product designers to successfully shorten the time-to-market for KD1053-based consumer end products.
