Hi everyone, I'm facing an interesting issue regarding the Ethernet interface in our G120 boards.
We stocked G120 SoM for our current products and we want to use the same parts for different applications on the same products.
One model of our current product line requires now 100Base-TX ethernet and we want to use our stock of G120 SoM.
Digging around the forums I have found that the G120-E is using the http://www.ti.com/product/DP83848K
So my question for GHI and anyone that could offer some light is:
If we get the same Ethernet PHY chip from the G120E, can we use the existing drivers on our existing G120?
Can someone share how can we connect this chip to a regular G120 to make the GHI built in driver for .Net framework work (pin wise)?
I'm not asking for the G120E schematics just for a sample pin out with this PHY chip to work with a G120 using the GHI existing drivers or maybe a way to reuse the existing Ethernet builtin code with the G120 and the Ethernet PHY chip because it was already done for the G120E.
Hopefully I won't need to develop a driver from scratch and be able to get some of the already tested and bullet-proof code from GHI into the Ethernet controller.
