TN9510: 5-speed 10GBase-T / NBASE-T™

10G Max Performance, More than 1G over legacy cables!

Designed to support high-volume enterprise wireless local-area network (WLAN) OEM systems requiring multi-Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, such as 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless access points, the TN9510 adapter reference design offers a low-power, small form factor and lowcost solution enabling pervasive NBASE-T connectivity.
NBASE-T technology boosts the speed of broadly deployed Cat5e twisted pair copper cabling up to 100 meters in length well beyond the designed limits of 1 Gbps.


The TN9510 Network Adapter reference design hosts the latest Tehuti TN4010 controller, an optimized 10GbE controller designed for low-power, low-cost, single-port applications.
The TN4010 MAC is paired with the Aquantia AQRate® AQR105 transceiver, a single-port, low power, high performance NBASE-T PHY.
The Tehuti adapter reference design supports auto-negotiation allowing the NBASE-T solution to optimally select the best speed: 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE), 5 Gigabit Ethernet (5GbE), 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet (2.5GbE), 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) or 100 Megabit Ethernet (100MbE) over Cat5e/Cat6 or better cabling.
