I'm looking for a very simple switch-on-a-chip to add to a design. I have a small but capable processor on the board already. That has SPI and USB available for a control interface.

I'm not really up-to-speed on switch chipsets.

Ideally I am trying to find 6, 8 or 10 port 100 base-T and a single 1000 base-T with as little host requirements as possible. Basically I'm taking 8 ports in and spitting them out down a gigabit link.

Anyone have any words of wisdom?

  • how should the switch chipset integrate with the board that has the CPU on it already? Is PCI or PCI-E acceptable? If so, how many lanes, split across how many slots, are there available to us?
