KSZ8873MLLJ Ethernet Switches

The KSZ8873MLLJ from Micrel is an integrated 3-Port 10/100 managed switch with two MACs MII or RMII interfaces

Micrel's KSZ8873MLLJ Ethernet SwitchesMicrel's KSZ8873MLLJ is the industrial version of the KSZ8873MLL that operates over the extended temperature range of -40°C to +125°C. It is a highly integrated 3-port switch on a chip IC. Low power consumption, advanced power management, and QoS features enable a new generation of low port count, cost-sensitive and power efficient 10/100Mbps switch systems.

  • Advanced Switch Features
    • Tail tag mode (1 byte added before FCS) support at port 3 to inform the processor which ingress port receives the packet and its priority
    • MAC MII interface supports both MAC mode and PHY mode
  • Comprehensive Confi guration Register Access
    • Serial management interface (MDC/MDIO) to all PHYs registers and SMI interface (MDC/MDIO) to all registers.
    • High-speed SPI (up to 25MHz) and I2C master Interface to all internal registers.
  • QoS/CoS Packet Prioritization Support
  • Switch Monitoring Features
    • MIB counters for fully-compliant statistics gathering 34 MIB counters per port.
    • Loop-back support for remote diagnostic of failure.
  • Low-Power Dissipation
    • Full-chip hardware/software power-down and per port software power down.
    • Energy-detect mode support
    • Per port based software power-save on PHY (idle link detection, register confi guration preserved)
