ABSTRACT
This article reports on a 24-port Fast Ethernet (FE) switch launched by Broadcom Corp., as of December 2004, that integrates 24-port FE physical layer transceivers and 2-port Gigabit Ethernet media access controllers into a single chip tailored for small-to-medium-sized business (SMB) networking applications. Sampling now, this latest innovation from Broadcom is a high-performance, cost-effective and complete local area network switching solution designed to replace existing multiple chip solutions and to leverage a common software platform. The new device provides SMB customers with cost and board space reduction, ease of design and fast time to market. The cost of technology deployment is a very sensitive issue with SMB customers. The Broadcom BCM5324 single-chip switch is designed to replace the typical three- to four-chip solutions on the market today, while at the same time offering full Layer 2 management features, such as Voice over Internet protocol, which are key to SMB switch customers and translate into tremendous cost and space savings and ease-of-design. The new device integrates all of the building blocks required for a high-performance switch system at an affordable SMB price point.
