AM5718-HIREL: Dual emac 1Gb ethernet switch

Part Number: AM5718-HIREL
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: AM5718, DP83848-EP


 I will be using AM5718. It has a GbE switch subsystem. I will be porting Linux OS into AM5718.

My requirement is to have two 10/100 ethernet ports for AM5718... PHYs to be used is DP83848-EP....

1. one ethernet port will be standard ethernet port

2. Other one would be used for onboard MAC-to- MAC communication....

i will not be utilizing the switch functionality.

Can I configure Ethernet Subsystem as two separate emacs??

Does Linux allow such a configuration??

Can I have separate MAC IDs for both?? MAC to MAC communication needs to have a fixed MAC id

pls advice
