Product Classification Host
Product Description The Broadcom BCM5720 is a 13th-generation 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet LAN controller solution suitable for high-performance server applications. The BCM5720 combines dual triple-speed IEEE 802.3 compliant Media Access Controllers (MACs) with dual 1000Base-X/SGMII SerDes transceivers or dual 10/100/1000 Ethernet transceivers (PHYs), selectable
individually per port, a Network Controller Sideband Interface (NC-SI) and on-chip memory buffer in a single device. The device provides a PCI Express (PCIe) v2.1 compliant host interface, which can operate at 5GTs or
2.5GT/s x2 link width. The PCI Express supports MSI and MSI-X capabilities and Function Level Reset (FLR). The host interface supports a separate PCI Express function
for each LAN interface. The BCM5720 includes IO
Virtualization (IOV) features such as 17 receive and 16 transmit queues, 17 MSI-X vectors with flexible vector-to-queue association. These IOV features enable the
BCM5720 to support the VMware NetQueue and
Microsoft VMQ technologies.
The BCM5720 includes a comprehensive set of
hardware features that the system may use to
implement IEEE 1588 or IEEE 802.1AS-based time
synchronization. These hardware features include a high-precision clock, time stamp registers for receive/transmit packets, and programmable trigger inputs and watchdog outputs.
The BCM5720 is fabricated in a low-voltage 65nm CMOS process, and integrates an efficient switching voltage regulator controller for core power supplies. Advanced power management features built into the BCM5720 enable minimizing the power consumption of the network controller subsystem by lowering the controller's power consumption under lighter network traffic without compromising performance.
The BCM5720 implements Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) compliant with the IEEE Std 802.3az-2010, which further reduces the power consumption with idle 100 Mbit or 1 Gbit GPHY links. These features provide a low system power consumption Ethernet network interface controller solution.
Vendor's Note
    Microsoft Windows has enhanced security by disabling the following functions:
- A host does not reply to a ping sent to a multicast address (like ff02::1).
- A host does not process a redirect that is not directly associated with a valid data transmission.
