Hello 🙂

I just have seen that the BCM5241XA1KMLG Ethernet transceiver used in the KIT_XMC48_RELAX_ECAT_V1 is discontinued.
Is there any recommendation from Infineon for a replacement if we start a new design?

Thanks in advance 🙂

Hi Chris,

Ideally the recommendation is to replace it with broadcom phy (BCM5241XA1KMLG) part if you have access to it.
You can find recommended PHYs in the following appnote from Beckhoff: PHY selection guide
But we do not guarantee that you can replace the phy and get it working without any additional changes as its not tested.

Best Regards,
Vasanth
