VSC7414 contains nine 10/100/1000 Mbps SGMII/SerDes ports and two 1G/2.5G SGMII/SerDes ports. All ports support both 100BASE-FX and 1000BASE-X SerDes. VSC7414 provides a rich set of Ethernet switching features such as Layer-2 forwarding with advanced TCAM-based VLAN and QoS processing enabling delivery of differentiated services. For critical network timing applications, VSC7414 uses VeriTime™ IEEE 1588, Microsemi’s patent-pending timing technology that delivers the industry’s most accurate IEEE 1588 network timing and synchronization implementation. Security is assured through frame processing using a TCAM-based Versatile Content Aware Processor (VCAP). VSC7414 includes an embedded 416 MHz MIPS processor 32-bit CPU with DDR2/DDR3 external memory. A comprehensive application programming interface (API) and software package are provided. The software package integrates easily with third-party software, preserving existing software investments while adding new, enhanced functionality.
