The BCM89501 devices are Broadcom's first fully integrated BroadR-Reach multilayer switches to support automotive qualification (AECQ100) for in-car networking applications.The BCM8950X family of products are the optimal solution for key automotive designs that have highperformance yet challenging low-power requirements.Building upon industry-leading 65 nm architecture, the BCM8950X family of products supports multiple intuitive low-power modes as well as an automotive cable diagnostics feature.
Enhanced architecture supports nonblocking, line-rate data transfer at wirespeed performance for all fame sizes over unshielded single-pair twisted cable.
Integrated switch core has provisions for the integrated ARM® Cortex™ R4 processor and dedicated on-chip SRAM to send and receive frames.
Processor subsystem able to support timing stack and AVB bridging support functions.
Support for Deep Sleep and Ultra Low Power modes, which reduce power consumption to zero during periods of inactivity.
Specific architectural and design enhancements are utilized to increase design for test, reliability, and quality to surpass AEC-Q100 and EMC requirements.
Designed to support IEEE 1588 and IEEE 802.1AS timing functions.
Designed to support both peer-to-peer and end-to-end transparent clocking in hardware.
Automotive cable diagnostics feature can detect pair open/short and distance.
