Integrated 5-Port 10/100 QoS Switch
Rev 2.6 General Description
The KS8995XA is a highly integrated Layer-2 quality of
service (QoS) switch with optimized bill of materials
(BOM) cost for low port count, cost-sensitive
10/100Mbps switch systems. It also provides an
extensive feature set including three different QoS
priority schemes, a dual MII interface for BOM cost
reduction, rate limiting to offload CPU tasks, software
and hardware power-down, a MDC/MDIO control
interface and port mirroring/monitoring to effectively
address both current and emerging Fast Ethernet
applications. The KS8995XA contains five 10/100 transceivers with
patented mixed-signal low-power technology, five media
access control (MAC) units, a high-speed non-blocking
switch fabric, a dedicated address lookup engine, and
an on-chip frame buffer memory.
All PHY units support 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX. In
addition, two of the PHY units support 100BaseFX
(Ports 4 and 5). Functional Diagram
