10/100M Ethernet Card



10/100M Ethernet Card is a daughter card to use with base boards with Altera FPGAs to attain 10/100MbitEthernet. This daughter card uses Micrel's Ethernet PHY, LDO, clock device and a HSMC connector. By connecting with an Altera FPGA based base board, FPGA designers can quickly start designs and evaluations using 10/100Mbit Ethernet interface.


Main device Micrel Etherne PHY KSZ8081MNXIA
Clock device Micrel CLK DSC1121DI1 (25MHz)
Power 3.3V - Supplied from HSMC connector
2.5V - Micrel LDO MIC5366-2.5YC5
Others Power LED x2 (2.5V, 3.3V), Status LED x2 (Link/Active, Speed)
HSMC connector x 1

Use Case Example

By connecting 10/100M Ethernet Card with Mpression Nitro board (sold separately) using HSMC connector, a designer can start FPGA designs using Ethernet interface very quickly. (This picture shows the case using Gigabit Ethernet Card)
