[semi-OT] Ethernet references

Started by drproton2003 December 1, 2006
hey all,

I've worked a bit with ethernet in the past, using things like
ethernut. I am looking looking forward to starting some more advanced
ethernet projects. I don't have as much of an understanding as I
would like of low-level ethernet (i.e. MAC, MII, PHY, ,magnetics,
frames, layers, etc). If anyone can reccomend some websites/books/etc
where I can gain a better understanding of these things it would be
greatly appreciated. I would certainly be willing to invest some time
and money into a good book on the subject. Information relevant to
embedded systems is preferable. Thanks

An Engineer's Guide to the LPC2100 Series

All of the 802 (i.e. Ethernet) working group specifications are
available FOC at www.ieee.org, see
http://standards.ieee.org/getieee802/
Though, this site mostly details with specification, not
implementation.

To find out more about how these specs were implememented, you need
to look at various chip manufacturers websites.

A lot of the early stuff (<100Meg etc) is now going obsolete, so is
harder to find.
