Microchip Technology Ethernet Switches

Microchip Technology offers ethernet switch ICs with innovative features and high-temperature operation to support applications ranging from consumer IoT devices to Industry 4.0 and automotive applications.

Microchip ethernet switches are available with up to 9 ports and can operate at speeds up to 1000 megabits per second, with full VLAN and QoS support. Support for Audio Video Bridging and Time-Sensitive Networking allows the devices to be used in systems requiring deterministic operation.

The switches also support Precision Time Protocol, enabling their use in precision measurement and control systems. For high-reliability systems, Microchip offers ethernet switches with a fault tolerance redundancy engine and enhanced link diagnostics for reliable operation.

The switches support low power, energy-efficient operation with enhanced power management features to minimize power consumption in battery-powered devices.
