One field of activity is to develop hardware near example code and test code for interface modules to demonstrate the capability of the SoC and the PHY. Also the development of demo hardware as well as media converters and test boards is in focus. In addition the field application team helps Ethernet customers during system development and takes care of any hardware- or software-related issue by understanding, analyzing and reproducing the reported finding. Typical Ethernet applications range from a stand-alone function like a singly PHY connection up to gateways with multiple PHYs of different standard classes and a complex switch matrix to handle the traffic.
