Win a LAN7430 PCIe 3.1 Ethernet Bridge Evaluation Board
We have teamed up with Microchip to give our readers a chance to win a LAN7430 PCIe 3.1 Ethernet Bridge Evaluation Board (EVB-LAN7430). Microchip's LAN7430 is a PCIe 3.1 (at 2.5GT/s) to Gigabit Ethernet bridge, providing an ultra high performance and cost effective PCIe to Ethernet connectivity solution for embedded and automotive applications.
LAN7430 contains an integrated Ethernet PHY, PCIe PHY, PCIe endpoint controller, Ethernet MAC, Integrated OTP, JTAG TAP and EEPROM controller. The device supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T Ethernet with auto-negotiation, auto-polarity correction, HP Auto-MDIX† support and is compliant with IEEE 802.3/802.3u/802.3ab standards.
PCIe-based networking provides flexibility for the routing and placement of network connections anywhere in the system. Specific enhancements for PCIe LPSS (Low Power Sub-States) L1.1 and LPSS L1.2 have been integrated to lower system power consumption. LAN7430 is available with a wide range of drivers including Windows, Linux, and Pseudo Code for development towards RTOS.
LAN7430 also supports Precision Time Protocol using industry standard 1588-2008 PTP. GPIOs are provided that can be software defined for this function. Included within this feature is a programmable timer compare output that can also be software configured.
The LAN7430 integrates all needed voltage regulators and requires only a single 3.3V supply. Further BOM savings can be realised through the integrated clock tree only requiring one external crystal or clock source. An EEPROM interface is provided although is not mandatory - an integrated OTP memory can provide for configuration data, further reducing system design cost and burden.
The LAN7430 is backed by Microchip’s free LANCheck online design review service that reviews customer designs, ensuring that best design practices are used.
