Other Parts Discussed in Thread: DP83822I
We want to use the DP83848H (or other TI 100BaseTX transceiver chips) in a non-Ethernet application as a data transceiver for longer than 100m (over Cat5 cable) distances.
We want to use the 100BaseTX line-coding mode (running at much slower rates).
We would input and output data to the MII that was custom (non-Ethernet data).
Is it possible to clock the DP83848H at a much lower frequency and still have the internal circuitry work i.e. the PLL and clock recovery etc?
