Multi-port GE Switch Series with Integrated PHYs and 10GE Uplinks


  • Eight 10/100/1000Base-T port with Integrated GPHYs.
  • One QSGMII port
  • Two 1000FX/2500FX (SGMII+) or 10000FX XFI/SFI ports.
  • Integr. ARM-Cortex M7 CPU for cost-effective applications.

Broadcom’s BBCM53156/53157/53158 is a family of highly integrated Gigabit Ethernet switches designed for high-end and cost-effective 1GE and above applications. The switch family supports eight 10/100/1000Base-T ports (with integrated GPHYs), one QSGMII port and additional one, or two, high-speed 2.5GE SGMII, or 10GE XFI/SFI ports.

The BCM53156/53157/53158 are optimally designed for Gigabit-Ethernet SMB, industrial and service provider applications that take advantage of high speed uplinks connectivity of 2.5GE/10GE speeds.
