datePCI ID


The BCM4401 is an integrated 10/100 Ethernet solution designed for PCI 2.2, mini PCI 1.0 compliant systems. It provides a complete IEEE 802.3u compliant MAC and PHY for seamless connectivity, making it suitable for applications such as PCI Network Interface Cards (NIC), Mini PCI cards, and LAN on motherboards (LOM).

Key Features:

  • PCI 2.2 and mini PCI 1.0 compliant 10/100 Ethernet solution
  • Fully integrated 10/100 MAC/PHY
  • IEEE 802.3 compliant MAC/PHY
  • Full-duplex flow control compliant with 802.3x
  • IEEE802.1p/Q and 802.3x support
  • 64-entry content addressable memory filtering
  • SNMP, RMON integrated MIB counters
  • Low-power IEEE 802.3u Fast Ethernet transceiver
  • HP Auto-MDIX
  • Remote boot PXE support
  • Meets PCI power management interface v1.1 (ACPI)
  • Integrated 3.3V to 1.8V regulator for lowest system cost
  • 0.18μ CMOS process
  • Available in 196-pin FBGA or 128-pin LQFP packages

The BCM4401 offers support for multiple form factors, including PCI 2.2 adapter, Mini PCI 1.0 for low-cost laptop solutions, and LAN on Motherboard (LOM) option. It comes with an advanced software suite that leverages the mature NetXtreme™ BCM570x enterprise driver architecture, providing compatibility with Windows® 2000, NT 4, Me, XP, and Microsoft® certification. The BCM4401 is pin-to-pin and software compatible with BCM5702 for seamless migration to gigabit 10/100/1000.
