HP A-series: Which Broadcom chipsets?

[Update 30/03/2013] Thanks guy for the info

 

system-view
_h
_display drv

 will show the driver. So let´s fill some gaps...

 

Well it´s common knowledge that Procurve has its own ASICs bultin. HP´s stackable A-series uses chipset from Broadcom (correct me is that´s wrong, please). I was looking aound, but found almost nothing about those chipsets being used. Does anyone know more?

 

- A5900: BCM56840

- A5920: ?

- A5820: ?

- A5800: BCM56639

- A5500-HI: BCM56526

- A5500-EI: BCM56514

- A5500-SI: ?

- A5120-EI: ?

- A5120-SI: no "BCM"?

 

P.S.: No, I don´t want to open my switches... Can I get that info via CLI? Display diag doesn´t help, though.

Why is this important?

 

The ProVision ASIC is am HP product, Comware-Based switches use Standard ASICs

Well, nothing special at all. I was asking this myself when I noticed that a 5120-SI with its 13MB firmware boots faster than a 5500-EI switch. But this might be something else at all...

Actually, you can find this in the diagnostic info. Hint: Broadcom chip model names start with BCM :)

And actually, if I remember well, only the K series (5400/3500/3800/6600/8200 etc) use the HP Provision ASIC, the smaller models (like 25xx/26xx) would also be using generic (broadcom?) chips.

 

A series is Broadcom+Fulcrum (high end, like 125xx). 5900 is the Broadcom Trident.

Do not know any other model specifics,
