Vativ Technologies has announced it has begun customer sampling a single-chip 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) transceiver for full-duplex operation over a single CAT5e or CAT6 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable. The transceivers are targeted at OEMs and system vendors developing high-speed Ethernet switches and servers for the enterprise datacenter market.

The chip, the V10LAN IC sells for $135 in quantities of one thousand. Customer samples and evaluation modules are available now, with volume production scheduled for early Q3 of 2005.

Sreen Raghavan, Vativ Technologies' president and CEO said in a statement that solutions based on the V10LAN are "the most economical for 10-Gigabit Ethernet backbones, costing less than a tenth of an equivalent short-reach optical solution."
