A transceiver has two functions: it is both a transmitter and receiver are combined to form a unit and work with the same channels. In some cases, the circuits 25g transceiver will not be shared, in this case it is called a transceiver, which has invented in the 1920s. Transceivers must combine a large part of the processing circuit as a transmitter and receiver shares as a transceiver and a transceiver to be considered. If you are reading from an IEEE 802 3 Document, then you are often referred to as transceivers fastening systems in the Central and mouse.
System fastening means may convert the signals via Ethernet cable or a signal or a UAI. For the original 10Base5 Ethernet, the system of setting medium was often pressed directly to the Ethernet cable itself. Standards have changed with the introduction of 10Base2. At this point, the system of setting medium was simply integrated into the card. Then, low in the effort, cost, what was required by its customer base to hold, the entire device Ethernet controller easily reduced in a single chip. Similar to a hub, ie a unit of the plant, the same characteristics from the fact that MAU allows a chip to switch between devices of different networks, even if the network uses the physical star topology. In modern systems, which are either Ethernet or lowered core switching, Mau and AUI are devices used not only in certain exceptional circumstances. They are replaced by CAT5 cable. This cable connects directly to an Ethernet jack that can be found on the host or router. Reverse opportunity exists in certain devices, which use an external interface AUI. Fastening systems to units with income can still be found 10Base2 and 10BaseT connections.
Transceivers are available in various devices. They are most commonly used in computers, telephones and radios. Computers use transceivers often under the guise of the plant units over the medium term. It is often fiber Gigabit and 10-gigabit transceivers, which are also known: GBIC, SFP, XFP and XAUI. Radio technology has worked, the use of transceivers for a long time, although they are often separated as a transceiver. Amateur radio is a good example, and they can be built using their own equipment operators. Finally, there is telephone service, used in the transceiver via a telephone line or a wired headset. One example is the common cell phone itself is a transceiver.
