The primary benefits of A-PHY are:
- A-PHY supports long cable lengths and a high data rate.
- A-PHY has enhanced noise immunity.
- A-PHY has an ultra-low packet error rate < 10-19.
- A-PHY has higher than a 90% net data rate.
- A-PHY can be fully implemented in hardware -- no software stack is required as in some solutions.
- Designed for use with widely implemented protocols and interfaces.
- A-PHY is the first asymmetric industry-standard solution. Most other solutions are proprietary.
