PSoC 5, 3 & 1 MCU

Hello, I'm planning on adding a Gigabit Ethernet interface to my board that has a PSoc5 microcontroller. Can anyone recommend a MAC device that is easy to interface to? Would the PSoc5 be fast enough to support Gigabit Ethernet?

Thanks,

Joe

Hello Joe,

I am listing down certain threads which might be useful

They mention the type of ethernet controller used and also how they interfaced with PSoC. Just make sure to port/modify it according to your target device.

Just ensure the ethernet controller is compatible with 1000 Base-T networks. The PSoC 5 has clocks ranging from 24Mhz upto 74 Mhz based on what device you are using, which should be able to provide necessary clocking for the SPI communication.
