DP83640: ETHERCAT Compatibility?

Part Number: DP83640
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: TMS320F28388D, TMDSCNCD28388D, DP83822I,

Hi all!

We are using TMS320F28388D and TMDSCNCD28388D is my current development board.

TMDSCNCD28388D has DP83822I phy transceiver for both ethernet and ethercat. I am wondering if the DP83640 is also compatible for ethercat. What i read is that ethercat works with MII interface so technically it supposed to work with DP83640  as well since it support MII.


Can we confirm that if I can use DP83640 with TMS320F28388D for ethercat and ethernet instead of DP83822I?

If yes what should I consider and take care to use DP83640 in my design?

Thanks in advance.
