Built-in SerDes
with SGMII support
The BCM5690 network switch is a scalable, modular chip solution with
12 ports. Each of these flexible ports supports Gigabit Ethernet or 10/100
Mbps Ethernet. Additionally, the BCM5690 supports both copper and
fiber physical interfaces. The BCM5690 has a fully integrated SerDes
functionality consisting of a 10 Gbps XAUI HiGig Port, Gigabit Ethernet
or a SGMII PHY interface.
The 10 Gbps HiGig Expansion port supports explicit priority, port
trunking, and mirroring functions across switch elements. The HiGig
port can be used to interconnect upto 32 BCM5690s making it extremely
useful for highly-scalable network switch applications.
The advanced fast filter processor (FFP) provides ContentAwareTM
network processing per port. The FFP supports ToS/DiffServ, rate
limiting, policing, priority tagging, and remapping. The advanced packet
filtering and classification functions of the BCM5690 make it ideal for
cutting-edge VoIP and firewall applications.
The BCM5690 supports advanced packet flow control such as head-ofline blocking prevention and IEEE 802.3x compatible full-duplex
control. Moreover, the BCM5690 supports a fully- integrated data and
address memory.
The BCM5690 switch supports an I2C controller for communicating
with external devices such as serial EEPROM, flash memories, and
parallel port devices.
The modular switching architecture of the BCM5690 embodies the
scalability, integration and performance features that a next generation
switch requires.
