Hi,

I will like to create a managed swith/router under debian.

I have see A20-SOM204-EVB that will be perfect as a router board.

But it lack a switch board

Could be possible to get a pcie switch board possibly based on BCM5396 chip (maybe going directly to MII will be less expansive).

Target price arround 150EUR will be nice.

BCM5396 is mature and supported by linux

May be using a LAN7431 on the pcie side will be nice by allowing to bit bang the SPI port with the GPIO.
