I am designing a custom PCB for the Xavier NX and I need to create a custom ethernet connector (I cannot use std ethernet connector). In the default carrier board design, they use ethernet connections with magnetics for PoE connections. My question is if I can connect directly the GbE Transformer Data 0 to 4 directly to the 8 connectors of the standard ethernet, this connection will be a point-to-point connection between to PCB so will not be expose to a regular ethernet connection.
We’re not sure whether you want to remove the transformer and connect the data of two PHYs directly or you want to connect the signals after transformers directly to bypass the ethernet cable?
Please attach the block diagram showing what you want to do.
