The LAN9353 is a full featured, 3 port 10/100 managed Ethernet switch designed for embedded applications where performance, flexibility, ease of integration and system cost control are required. The LAN9353 combines all the functions of a 10/100 switch system, including the Switch Fabric, packet buffers, Buffer Manager, Media Access Controllers (MACs), PHY transceivers, and serial management. IEEE 1588v2 is supported via the integrated IEEE 1588v2 hardware time stamp unit, which supports end-to-end and peer-to-peer transparent clocks. The LAN9353 complies with the IEEE 802.3 (full/half-duplex 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX) Ethernet protocol, IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) (100Mbps only), and 802.1D/802.1Q network management protocol specifications, enabling compatibility with industry standard Ethernet and Fast Ethernet applications. 100BASE-FX is supported via an external fiber transceiver.
The LAN9353 provides 3 switched ports. Each port is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3 standard and all internal MACs and PHYs support full/half duplex 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX operation. The LAN9353 provides 2 on-chip PHYs, 2 Virtual PHYs and 3 MACs. The Virtual PHY and the third MAC are used to connect the Switch Fabric to an external MAC or PHY. In MAC mode, the device can be connected to an external PHY via the MII/RMII/Turbo MII interface. In PHY mode, the device can be connected to an external MAC via the MII/RMII/Turbo MII interface. Optionally, the internal PHY on Port 1 can be disabled and the associated Switch Fabric port operated in the RMII PHY or RMII MAC modes. All ports support automatic or manual full duplex flow control or half duplex backpressure (forced collision) flow control. 2K jumbo packet (2048 byte) support allows for oversized packet transfers, effectively increasing throughput while decreasing CPU load. All MAC and PHY related settings are fully configurable via their respective registers within the device.
