Is there any the list of ethernet phy supported by Jetson Orin Series.
and also i would like to know I219-LM from Intel is supported by the Jetson Orin series.
I had seen a list for Xavier NX in one of the queries, i would like know whether the same will be supported by Orin NX too and is there any updated list of the same. If yes can you share that updated list.
Then you don’t need just a PHY. You need an MAC+PHY instead. A PHY converts (R)GMII into MDI for RJ45, but you need the controller part as well.
You have basically these choices:
Intel: i350 Dual or Quad GB Ethernet MAC+PHY
Intel i210/i211 Single GB Ethernet MAC+PHY
Intel i225/i226 Single 2.5 GB Ethernet MAC+PHY
Realtek RTL8111x Single GB Ethernet MAC+PHY (x is a letter A…K)
Realtek RTL8125B Single 2.5 GB Ethernet MAC+PHY
The Intel chips need proprietary firmware in order to work. You need to ask Intel for these firmware images and the required special programming tools, and they won’t speak to you unless you are big enough to make them $$$. The chips you buy are empty and useless without the correct firmware.
Realtek chips are not so powerful but cheaper and don’t require any firmware. The chips are usable when you buy them. Forget asking Realtek to give you datasheets or chips. They won’t talk to you unless you buy millions. At least that’s my experience with both Intel and Realtek. There are no alteratives besides them.
A solution would be M.2 controller cards. They can be bought also in small quantities, and the drivers are part of the main Linux kernel.
BTW: i219-LM is only suitable for use with specific Intel PC chipsets.
