EVB-KSZ9563 - KSZ9563 Plug-in Evaluation Board

Part Number: EVB-KSZ9563

Summary:

The EVB-KSZ9563 evaluation board is a plug-in card that interfaces directly with a mating Microchip host processor or controller board, such as the SAMA5D3-Ethernet Development System. It features the KSZ9563, a highly-integrated networking device that incorporates a layer-2+ managed Gigabit Ethernet switch, two 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/ 1000BASE-T physical layer transceivers (PHYs) and associated MAC

Summary

The EVB-KSZ9563 evaluation board is a plug-in card that interfaces directly with a mating Microchip host processor or controller board, such as the SAMA5D3-Ethernet Development System. It features the KSZ9563, a highly-integrated networking device that incorporates a layer-2+ managed Gigabit Ethernet switch, two 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/ 1000BASE-T physical layer transceivers (PHYs) and associated MAC units, and one MAC port configured as the RGMII interface. The board’s two PHY ports are connected to RJ45 Ethernet jacks with integrated magnetics, and the RGMII MAC interface is brought out to a high bandwidth multi-pin connector.

As a set, the EVB-KSZ9563 and SAMA5D3-Ethernet Development System Board provide a highly-flexible platform to enable evaluation of basic KSZ9563 PHY/Switch features using static control-status registers (CSRs) to develop firmware of advanced KSZ9563 MAC/Switch features, such as IEEE1588 PTP and RSTP/MSTP that require interaction with upper network layers.
