ASIC DCX8510-FC16-64

    We had a new switch DCX8510-FC16-64 (Blade 64 ports) and I'm trying to find the ASIC information for trunk group ports in order to place the trunk ports optimally.

    I found this on the internet (Picture A) but in our 64-port blades, ports go from left to right and not from bottom to top.
    As a result, I do not know if the ASIC changes.

    On the picture A, port 0 is next to port 32 but in our blades (Picture B) port 0 is next to port 1.

    I could not find any relevant information for the 64-port blades on internet. Do you know where I could find some?

    Thank you!

    On the FC16-64 blade, ports are numbered from 0 through 63 from bottom to top
    Ports 0-31 are connected to ASIC 1 and 32-63 to ASIC 2
    Trunking port groups are 0-7, 8-15, 16-23, 24-31, 32-39, 40-47, 48-55, and 56-63 as marked on faceplate ​
