App note: Ethernet theory of operation

Posted on Sunday, October 7th, 2012 in app notes by DP

Here is an app note from Microchip describing the basics of Ethernet. It is intended as a reference for people developing Ethernet applications on PIC microcontrollers. Seeing as it’s theoretical, most of the article can be applied to other microcontrollers as well.

This document specifies the theory and operation of the Ethernet technology found in PIC® MCUs with integrated Ethernet and in stand-alone Ethernet controllers.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
