SUMMARY OF BENEFITS
• Enables a new generation of affordable 10/100 switches with
highest integration of enhanced L2+ features
• Uses field-proven industry-standard 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX
(100BASE-FX compatible) Fast Ethernet transceivers—
lowering overall system interoperability and reliability risks
• IEEE 802.1Q based VLAN and flexible priority queues
mapped to selectable protocols such as IEEE 802.1p, Diffserv,
ToS, and CoS, enable the switch to be designed to a wide
variety of applications for multimedia and data traffic
• Supports port based Extensible Authentication Protocol over
LAN in four application modes; forwards only EAPOL frames
to the CPU for authentication and allows secure mode traffic
filtering
• Supports IEEE 802.1ad aggregation/port trunking
• Per port storm control of broadcast, multicast, and unlearned
unicast traffic
• Flexible per port ingress/egress rate control with minimum
resolution of 48 Kbps for better traffic management
• MAC address locking enhances security control
• MII port supports additional 100TX/FX
• Optional reversed MII port connects directly to an IEEE 802.3
compliant MAC
• Access to all internal registers through SPI or MDC/MDIO
interfaces
• Low-cost management using the on-chip MIB registers allows
the collection and transmission of basic management statistics
for each port
• Switch management features:
• Low-cost MIB Autocast function
• Hardware support for Simple Network Management Protocol
(SNMP), remote network monitoring (RMON), IEEE 802.1d
spanning tree protocol, IEEE 802.1s multiple spanning tree (up
to 32), and IEEE 802.1w rapid spanning tree protocol

The BCM5338M switch is a sixth-generation switch designed based on
the field-proven industry-leaders, the BCM5328 and BCM5328M
switches. This device combines all of the functions of a high-speed
switch system—including packet buffers, PHY transceivers, MACs,
address management, and a non-blocking switch fabric—into a single
0.18-micron CMOS device. The BCM5338M complies with IEEE
802.3, IEEE 802.3u, and IEEE 802.3x specifications, including the MAC
control PAUSE frame and auto-negotiation subsections, providing
compatibility with all industry-standard Ethernet and Fast Ethernet
devices.
The BCM5338M contains eight full-duplex 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX
Fast Ethernet transceivers, each of which performs all of the physical
layer interface functions for 10BASE-T Ethernet on Category 3, 4, or 5
Unshielded Twisted-Pair (UTP) cable and performs 100BASE-TX Fast
Ethernet functions on Category 5 UTP cable.
In addition to the robust 10/100 Ethernet DigiPHY™, MIB Autocast,
and management functions, the eight-port switch in the BCM5338M has
a rich feature set suitable for voice over IP and video and data traffic for
multimedia applications.
The four-level priority queues mapped to IEEE 802.1p, Diffserv, ToS,
and CoS, 512 entries IEEE 802.1Q VLAN, IEEE 802.1x EAPOL

protocol filtering, MAC based trunking with link fail-over, per-port
bandwidth/rate control, MAC address locking, IGMP snooping at
layer2/3, and port protection function, allow system vendors to build
advanced L2+ switch systems for the multitenant/multidweller unit
(MDU/MTU) markets.
The proprietary MIB Autocast function encapsulates the on-chip MIB
statistics and sends them out automatically on a predefined port (or ports)
at programmed intervals. The BCM5338M periodically transmits a legal
Ethernet frame on a designated port. The frames can be intercepted by an
external management probe or a dedicated network management
application resident on any node within the network. This function
requires only a small, low-cost microcontroller to initialize and
configure the device.
The BCM5338M provides an on-chip MIB statistics register to collect,
receive, and transmit statistics for each port. Additionally it provides
direct hardware support for the Ether-like MIB, Bridge MIB, MIB II
(interfaces) and the first four groups of the RMON MIB. All nine groups
of RMON can be supported by using additional capabilities, such as port
mirroring/snooping, together with an external microcontroller to process
some MIB attributes. The MIB registers can be accessed through the
serial management port by an external microcontroller.
