Ethernet SwitchKitTM

  Features:     Description:
  • From two to thirty-two Ethernet ports.
  • Support for standard (10/100/1000) and non-standard Ethernet data rates.
  • Supports both cut-through, and store and forward packet forwarding with extremely low cut-through forwarding latency.
  • Port mapping table supports up to 8K MAC addresses.
  • Multicast rate limiting support.
  • Flexible buffer memory interface supporting a wide range of on-chip and off-chip memory technologies.
  • Port aggregation support for trunking and load balancing applications, with user definable distribution functions.
  • Support for EDAC on all memory structures.
  • Extensive diagnostic, and fault recovery capabilites.
  • Flexible management interface supports both on-chip and off-chip management processors.
  • Linux based management firmware.

The switch provides low-latency, wire-speed connectivity between Ethernet ports. The Switch Management Block handles maintenance transaction accesses to internal registers, as well as generating event notification messages. Figure 1 illustrates the overall architecture of the switch.
