The FibreCode USB Ethernet Adapter represents a modular hardware interface connecting a
standard USB 2.0 interface to
a standard 10/100 Base-T Ethernet network. The Ethernet physical interface is realized by
a Texas Instruments DP83848 PHY chip.
The design of the USB Ethernet Adapter is split into two hardware modules. The USB Base Board features an NXP LPC4357 microcontroller. The LPC4357 is realizing an USB 2.0 device interface for connectivity to a host platform as well as MII, SMI and GPIO interfaces to the DP83848 Ethernet PHY. The DP83848 is assembled on the Ethernet Phy Board.
The modular design of the USB Ethernet Adapter enables seamless upgrade of the Ethernet physical interface by replacing the Ethernet Phy Board.
The firmware of the LPC4357 is implementing standard USB HID and CDC/ECM class profiles allowing access to the Ethernet network data through standard USB HID and CDC class drivers available on MS-Windows and Linux host platforms.
The USB interface of the USB Ethernet Adapter allows seamless connection to a broad variety of PCs, notebooks and embedded platforms. The USB HID and CDC/ECM profiles enable the usage of USB hosts running MS-Windows as well as Linux operating systems. This enables the usage of the USB Ethernet Adapter for several use cases.
