The BCM89500/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 with high performance yet challenging low-power requirements.

Building upon 65 nm architecture, the BCM8950X family of products supports multiple intuitive low-power modes 
as well as an automotive cable diagnostics feature.


BCM89500 (*01)
176-pin 24 x 24 eLQFP package
4 (5) Integrated BroadR-Reach PHYs, 3 (2) uplink ports 

 

Key features

  • Automotive switch with integrated BroadR-Reach PHYs
  • Cost effective connectivity through lower cabling cost.
  • Advanced power savings with Green technology.
  • Highly optimized for multiple incar network applications.

 

Additional features

  • 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.
