A new bundled chip and software solution for networking applications embeds the 24+2 Intelligent Switch (L64324) from LSI Logic with Tornado for Managed Switches (TMS) software from Wind River to provide a low cost-per-port single-chip solution for the voice and data communications market. The L64324 is a single chip that features a fully integrated 24-port fast Ethernet (10/100) switch with two-Gigabit uplinks and an embedded ARM processor. The TMS-based L64324 management software provides a full set of features, which include the simple network management protocol (SNMP), web and console management, remote monitoring (RMON), support for the spanning tree protocol, 802.1Q VLAN, and 802.1p priority queuing support. In addition, the L64324 management software includes features such as IP multicast, port trunking, port mirroring diagnostics, per-port security, and hot swapability on up links. The L64324 is priced at $100 in volume shipments. The fully tested management software is now available from LSI Logic and can be demonstrated on the L64324 System Development Platform (SDP).
