Introduction to Microcontrollers Mike Silva.
It has 4 problems: I have found candidates from Marvell, Vitesse, and Broadcom. All claim to use about half the power, are much smaller, and don’t need the 1.
axe(4) (Belkin F5D5055) problems
The problem is that all of them require an NDA just to see the datasheet. This seems nuts to me. I mean, what could possibly be NDA-worthy in the datasheet for a 4 year old part that implements a technology GbE which is nearly a decade old?
I don’t see how this clashes with open source hardware though. The schematic merely shows et11011c pinout.
The pinout isn’t covered by the NDA, as that information is already published in schematics that you can download. For example, I found this schematic containing an 88E in less than a minute of searching: An NDA might be more of a problem for the software; device driver et1011f typically contains information about many of the PHY internal registers.
I am not a lawyer, and you should read the terms of the NDA very closely. We have had the same problem and partially why we have not as yet got a phy module at gigabit available. We didn’t think it was worth incorporating in development boards, or modules, if our customers couldn’t get the basic information.
The other problem with these companies is getting smallish numbers of chips is generally expensive and difficult.

I can only hope these companies stop being so datwsheet as they get rapid volume turnoff in the current recession in their favoured consumer markets.
John Adair Enterpoint Ltd. On 17 Dec, Micrel has nothing gigabit on their website. On Dec 17, 2: The fact that other users dataheet been forced to redact pages of schematics tells me that this is a serious problem. Plus, all the source code is open as well, so who knows what secret registers that might reveal. Besides, I don’t want to reward such bad behavior by these chip companies. Can you imagine how hard it would be to design anything if every chip you used had NDAs attached to it?
It is cheap, low power, available, and they give out the datasheets without an NDA. Anybody have any experience with it? Sign in Sign in Remember me Forgot username or password?
