Gigabit PHY controllers

Intel® 82579 Gigabit Ethernet Connection Family

The Intel® 82579 Gigabit Ethernet Controller family provides compact, single-port integrated physical layer devices that connect to the Intel® 6 Series Express Chipsets.

The Intel 82579 family of products are gigabit copper networking components for mobile, desktop, workstation, embedded, and value-server designs that have critical space and power constraints. The device reduces the power consumption in all power states compared to previous generations of Intel controllers. For mobile designs, Intel® Auto Connect Battery Saver can help reduce the cable-disconnected power of the chip to about 30 milliwatt (mW) while still maintaining full functionality.
