Toshiba's Ethernet Bridge IC TC9563XBG

Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation has added “TC9563XBG” to its line-up of Ethernet bridge ICs to provide support for 10Gbps communications in automotive information communications systems and industrial equipment. This new IC is AEC-Q100 Grade 3 qualified and can be used in applications such as IVI and telematics.

This new bridge IC features 2-port 10Gbps Ethernet, and the interface can be selected from USXGMII, XFI, SGMII, and RGMII. The two ports support Ethernet AVB and TSN, which facilitate real-time processing and synchronous processing, respectively. Moreover, these ports also support “simplified” SR-IOV (virtual functions).

Key Features

  • 2 10Gbps Ethernet ports (selectable from USXGMII, XFI, SGMII or RGMII)
  • 3 PCIe Gen3 switch ports
  • To be AEC-Q100 Grade 3 qualified

The TC9563XBG IC has three PCIe Gen 3 switch ports for communications with the host SoC and connection to devices equipped with PCIe interfaces. The PCIe switch part is configured with one 4-lane upstream port for connection with the host SoC and two 1-lane downstream ports for connection to devices with a PCIe interface.
