The heart of the RTL8211E Gigabit Ethernet Expansion module is RTL8211E-VB, a highly integrated Ethernet transceiver from Realtek that comply with 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, and 1000Base-T IEEE 802.3 standards. RTL8211E-VB supports communication with the Ethernet MAC layer via standard RGMII interface. The main objective of using the RGMII interface over the GMII interface is to reduce the number of IOs to half for interconnecting MAC and PHY. RTL8211E-VB implements auto-negotiation to automatically determine the best possible speed and mode of operation. HP Auto-MDIX support allows the use of direct connects or cross-over LAN cables. RTL8211E Gigabit Ethernet Expansion Module also has Microchip 24AA02E48 2Kbit EEPROM with a built-in unique MAC address. This MAC address can be read from the EEPROM and used for the Ethernet interface.
