Microsemi Eases Industrial Network Migration to Ethernet with New Low Power, High Feature Switch Family



Ethernet Switch Silicon and Software Optimized for Industrial Ethernet Applications Targets Industrial Internet of Things Market Opportunities



ALISO VIEJO, Calif. -- Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced its new Ocelot product family, a low power, feature-rich Ethernet switch family optimized for communications networking in the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) market. Designed for the specific needs of industrial Ethernet switch applications, such as factory automation, process control, smart grid/smart energy and physical security, Microsemi's new devices simplify IIoT network migration to an Ethernet backbone with flexible interfaces, TCAM based classifications, 1588 timing and ring protection in a small package.



"Ethernet's use in industrial communications is increasingly widespread as the industry looks to modernize their networks onto this ubiquitous standard," said Larry O'Connell, director of product marketing at Microsemi. "As a leading integrated circuit, systems and software provider with a power-optimized and flexible Ethernet networking portfolio, we are expanding our offering to support a wide range of industrial Ethernet applications. The addition of our new Ocelot devices expands our portfolio and provides IIoT customers with a cost-effective solution that does not compromise on features, unlike competitive offerings."



According to ARC Advisory Group, the industrial Ethernet switch market is now over $1 billion annually and expected to grow at double-digit rates for the next five years.



Microsemi's Ocelot family includes:

--  VSC7511, a four-port, layer 2 gigabit Ethernet switch with four fully integrated copper PHYs

--  VSC7512, a 10-port, layer 2 gigabit Ethernet switch with four fully integrated copper PHYs

--  VSC7513, an eight-port, layer 2/3 gigabit Ethernet switch

--  VCS7514, a 10-port layer 2/3 gigabit Ethernet switch



In addition to leveraging Microsemi's technology to offer low power, small package sizes, 1588 timing and ring protection, the Ocelot switches feature optimized port configurations, unmanaged and managed options, and IStaX software optimized for the industrial market.
