Increase efficiency with Broadcom encoders

Versatile encoder solutions enabling green applications

For motion and feedback control, providing both single-turn and multi-turn positions

Incremental encoders for speed control of servo motors

Optical and magnetic encoders designed to operate at temperatures required for harsh and challenging environments.

Wind Turbine

Absolute encoders are used for monitoring the Yaw control of the nacelle (the main structure which houses all generating components, gearbox, drive train, etc.). Absolute encoders are ideal for the pitch control of the blades to adapt to different wind conditions. Incremental encoders can be used for speed monitoring of the generator

Solar Panel

Absolute encoders are an ideal solution for monitoring the panel position to adapt to optimum sunlight direction & conditions.

LiDAR in Autonomous Electric Vehicles

Reflective and Magnetic encoders for Polygon/rotating mirror and speed control.

Single pair ethernet – SPE

Single Pair Ethernet is a technology that will enable communication in Smart factories with reliable real time data from any sensor up to the cloud. Features of Single Pair Ethernet are reduced cabling costs, small sized connectors and high bandwidth using Ethernet-TSN Standard products.

Broadcom has a comprehensive product portfolio of PHYs that are already available today with the lowest power consumption and featuring auto-negotiation.



Key features in the PHY portfolio include:

  • Full compliance to Energy Efficient Ethernet(EEE) standard which offers substantially lower power consumption
  • Most precise IEEE1588 v2 timing synchronization offering 1ns resolution with hardware -assist delay measurement
  • Extended Reach and Cabling Flexibility: Capability to extend reach of 100/10 Mbps over longer distances using a variety of cabling options
  • I-temp qualified solutions in the latest process technologies offering small package options
