10/100 Ethernet Switch

The KSZ8563 is a highly-integrated, IEEE 802.3 compliant networking device that incorporates a layer-2+ managed Ethernet switch, two 10Base-T/100Base-TX physical layer transceivers (PHYs) and associated MAC units, and one MAC port with a configurable RGMII/MII/RMII interface for direct connection to a host processor/ controller, another Ethernet switch, or an Ethernet PHY transceiver. KSZ8563 also implements IEEE 1588v2 Precision Timing Protocol one-step operation.

Additionally, for monitoring and control purposes, an LED functionality is carried on the RJ45 connectors to indicate activity, link, and speed status information.
