|Micrel, Inc.'s KSZ8873MLL/FLL/RLL are highly integrated 3-port switch on a chip ICs in one of the industry's smallest footprints. They are designed to enable a new generation of low port count, cost-sensitive, and power efficient 10/100Mbps switch systems. Low power consumption, advanced power management, and sophisticated QoS features (e.g., IPv6 priority classification support) make these devices ideal for IPTV, IP-STB, VoIP, automotive, and industrial applications.
The KSZ8873 family is designed to support the GREEN requirement in today's switch systems. Advanced power management schemes include hardware power down and the energy detect mode, which shuts downs the transceiver when a port is idle.
