[realtek] what the best chip for embedded
Wed Jun 19 05:33:01 2002
Perhaps this is too general, but...
I am planning an embedded board and would like to know what is the best of
the low-cost 10/100 Ethernet chips.
Important for consideration:
- power usage
(this will use POE and it allows about 13 watts plus a little)
- good linux drivers (of course)
- board realestate
(the size of the chip and how much area it requires on the board)
- minimum load on CPU, as the CPU will not be so fast
(this is a low cost embedded board)
