6 Applications, Implementation, and Layout


Information in the following applications sections is not part of the TI component specification, and TI does not warrant its accuracy or completeness. TI’s customers are responsible for determining suitability of components for their purposes. Customers should validate and test their design implementation to confirm system functionality.

6.1 Application Information

The DP83849I is a dual port physical layer Ethernet transceiver. When using the device for Ethernet application, it is necessary to meet certain requirements for normal operation of the device. The following typical application and design requirements can be used for selecting appropriate component values for DP83849.

6.2 Typical Application

6.2.1 Design Requirements

For this design example, use the parameters listed in Table 6-1 as the input parameters.

Table 6-1 Design Parameters

VIN 3.3 V
VOUT VCC – 0.5 V
Clock Input 25 MHz for MII and 50 MHz for RMII

6.2.2 Detailed Design Procedure TPI Network Circuit

Figure 6-1 shows the recommended circuit for a 10/100 Mb/s twisted pair interface.

Below is a partial list of recommended transformers. It is important that the user realize that variations with PCB and component characteristics requires that the application be tested to ensure that the circuit meets the requirements of the intended application.

DP83849I 10_100mbs_twisted_pair_int_snosax1.gif Figure 6-1 10/100 Mb/s Twisted Pair Interface Clock In (X1) Requirements

The DP83849I supports an external CMOS level oscillator source or a crystal resonator device. Oscillator

If an external clock source is used, X1 must be tied to the clock source and X2 must be left floating.

Specifications for CMOS oscillators: 25 MHz in MII Mode and 50 MHz in RMII Mode are listed in Table 6-2 and Table 6-3. Crystal

A 25 MHz, parallel, 20-pF load crystal resonator must be used if a crystal source is desired. Figure 6-2 shows a typical connection for a crystal resonator circuit. The load capacitor values will vary with the crystal vendors; check with the vendor for the recommended loads. The oscillator circuit is designed to drive a parallel resonance AT cut crystal with a minimum drive level of 100 µW and a maximum of 500 µW. If a crystal is specified for a lower drive level, a current limiting resistor must be placed in series between X2 and the crystal.

As a starting point for evaluating an oscillator circuit, if the requirements for the crystal are not known, CL1 and CL2 must be set at 33 pF, and R1 must be set at 0 Ω.

Specification for 25-MHz crystal are listed in Table 6-4.

6.2.3 Power Feedback Circuit

To ensure correct operation for the DP83849I, parallel caps with values of 10 µF and 0.1 µF must be placed close to pin 31 (PFBOUT) of the device. Pin 7 (PFBIN1), pin 28 (PFBIN2), pin 34 (PFBIN3) and pin 54 (PFBIN4) must be connected to pin 31 (PFBOUT), each pin requires a small capacitor (0.1 µF). See Figure 6-3 for proper connections.

6.2.4 Power Down/Interrupt

The Power Down and Interrupt functions are multiplexed on pin 18 and pin 44 of the device. By default, this pin functions as a power down input and the interrupt function is disabled. Setting bit 0 (INT_OE) of MICR (11h) will configure the pin as an active low interrupt output. Ports A and B can be powered down individually, using the separate PWRDOWN_INT_A and PWRDOWN_INT_B pins. Power Down Control Mode

The PWRDOWN_INT pins can be asserted low to put the device in a Power Down mode. This is equivalent to setting bit 11 (Power Down) in the Basic Mode Control Register, BMCR (00h). An external control signal can be used to drive the pin low, overcoming the weak internal pullup resistor. Alternatively, the device can be configured to initialize into a Power Down state by use of an external pulldown resistor on the PWRDOWN_INT pin. Because the device will still respond to management register accesses, setting the INT_OE bit in the MICR register will disable the PWRDOWN_INT input, allowing the device to exit the Power Down state Interrupt Mechanisms

Because each port has a separate interrupt pin, the interrupts can be connected individually or may be combined in a wired-OR fashion. If the interrupts share a single connection, each port status must be checked following an interrupt.

The interrupt function is controlled through register access. All interrupt sources are disabled by default. Setting bit 1 (INTEN) of MICR (11h) will enable interrupts to be output, dependent on the interrupt mask set in the lower byte of the MISR (12h). The PWRDOWN_INT pin is asynchronously asserted low when an interrupt condition occurs. The source of the interrupt can be determined by reading the upper byte of the MISR. One or more bits in the MISR will be set, denoting all currently pending interrupts. Reading of the MISR clears ALL pending interrupts.

Example: To generate an interrupt on a change of link status or on a change of energy detect power state, the steps would be:

  • Write 0003h to MICR to set INTEN and INT_OE
  • Write 0060h to MISR to set ED_INT_EN and LINK_INT_EN
  • Monitor PWRDOWN_INT pin

When PWRDOWN_INT pin asserts low, the user would read the MISR register to see if the ED_INT or LINK_INT bits are set; that is, which source caused the interrupt. After reading the MISR, the interrupt bits must clear and the PWRDOWN_INT pin will deassert.
