DP83848J: DP83848 queries

Part Number: DP83848J
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: DP83848K-MAU-EK, DP83848I-POE-EK

Hi Team,

Can  you please help addressing below queries. 

  1. How to find the IP address for Evaluation kits DP83848K-MAU-EK & DP83848I-POE-EK?
  2. Kindly suggest USB cables which we need to use for connecting the Evaluation kits to PC for programming purposes.
  3. Using the Analog LaunchPAD v1.26.0002 for establishing the connections. Whether it can be used for DP83848 series or not?


  • Hi Shinu,

    1. These EVMs have no MAC on them. The IP address is related to the MAC, not the PHY.

    2. Neither EVM has a USB connection. You will need to communicate with the PHY using the MDC/MDIO and MII interfaces. 

    3. Analog LaunchPAD is used for FPD-Link serializers and deserializers. I have never seen it used for ethernet PHYs.
