BCM53112 is a highly integrated Fast-Ethernet switch designed for high-end FE applications. It is designed for Industrial applications that demand advanced Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) and Audio-Video-Bridging (AVB) support.The device can also be used for next-generation 100Mbps hybrid-speed SMB solutions that require combinations of 100M/1GE/2.5GE ports and are either unmanaged or lightly managed from GUI or from the cloud.The switch integrates a powerful ARM Cortex-M7 CPU that enables customers to design complete SMB and Industrial switches without relying on external processors.
