| Microchip's LAN7500 is a high speed USB 2.0 to 10/100/1000 gigabit Ethernet controller that provides a high performance and cost effective USB-to-Ethernet connectivity solution. The LAN7500 contains an integrated 10/100/1000 gigabit Ethernet PHY, USB PHY, high speed USB 2.0 device controller, 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet MAC, TAP controller, EEPROM controller, and a FIFO controller with a total of 32KB internal packet buffering. The device supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 1000BASE-T Ethernet and implements control, interrupt, bulk-in, and bulk-out USB endpoints. The Ethernet controller supports auto-negotiation, auto-polarity correction, and HP auto-MDIX support and is compliant with IEEE 802.3/802.3u/802.3ab standards. USB-based networking provides flexibility for the routing and placement of network connections anywhere in the system.
