I read through the data sheet of 5100 but I could not get a answer on the number of ASIC in 5100.
I have gone through some of the previous posts here and it says all 40 ports are in one ASIC.
Do we have any documentation on it ? Or if some one can put a screenshot of it would be helpful
The main reason is I to need to design a solution and it must be local switching.
Thanks in Advance.

In 5100's Brocade datasheet :
"The Brocade 5100 utilizes sixth-generation ASIC technology featuring five 8-port groups. "
As it has only 40 ports, you may conclude there's only one ASIC.
