DP83848I: Difference between DP83848I and DP83848J
Part Number: DP83848K
There is no chassis ground in customer's system. Can we leave TXOCT and RXOCT unconnected? If TXOCT and RXOCT must be grounded, can we connect them together to a virtual(floating) ground?
Thanks a lot!
Just to clarify for myself, this not a screenshot from the customer system? I see a Chassis Ground in this diagram.
If customer does not have a Chassis or Shield Ground, what is the ground used for cable connector? RJ45 should have ground pins.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Nikhil Menon:
You are right. It's a picture from our EVM user's guide. They don't use RJ45 in their application. They only use four wires TX+ TX- RX+ RX- to communicate with other devices. I know it's not a typical application. Could you give some advice about the connection of center tap?
In reply to Naizeng Wang:
I am looking into this application and will provide additional feedback by tomorrow.
To further clarify, the MDI output is directly connected to another device on the same PCB, correct? Are there DC blocking caps along the MDI lines between devices?
We would still recommend using a Bob Smith Termination to ground for the magnetics. As this is not a typical application, we have not characterized this and cannot guarantee it's performance. We would recommend to do your own testing to verify this setup.
