ETHERNET 10/100BASE-TX MODULE WITH RJ-45 LINE CONNECTOR AND MII INTERFACE
Designed for rapid network connectivity prototyping this Ethernet 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX Module supplied with a complete software stack, allowing instant connection of AURIX™ CPU to a network node through MII (Media Independent Interface).
The Module is based on KSZ9031MNX PHY from Microchip, a completely integrated triple-speed (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T) Ethernet physical layer transceiver, for transmission and reception of data on standard CAT-5 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable.
This module makes the transition to 1Gbps networking easy as it supports the GMII (Gigabit Media Independent Interface) interface as well.
The MDI (Media Dependent Interface), sometimes called “Line Interface” of the Module supports 1Gbps (1000BASE-T) interface natively and 10BASET/100BASE-TX as subset of it.
The Module generates all necessary clocks and auxiliary supplies needed to run it locally and provides 125MHz reference clock output. A convenient 2mm grid allows all MII and system interface signals to be easily probed on the Carrier board side.
Module software ports in and provides drivers for the LwIP stack, FreeRTOS and embedded MAC for all AURIX™ platforms supporting Ethernet.
