I plan on using the DP83630 PHY with the TMS5704357BZWTQQ1 hercules uP (similiar to the setup on the HERC launchpad).
Can I use the PHY as just a "sniffer" on an ethernet switch?
that is, our customer does not want us "transmitting" on the ethernet , but we would like to be able to "sniff" certain messages on the network (i.e. for insttance, to strip off the gps location of the vehicle, and other vehicle info).
this is a autnomouse vehicle app.
I see the TX_EN pin which I thought might be able to be controlled...but not sure.
again..not expert on the part...but figured I'd ask.....
than you for any response.
