    Hello

    Has anyone here used the Ethernet peripheral with an MCU like the STM32F407?
    The datasheet mentions the necessity of an external PHY. I'm curious as to how difficult it would
    be to write it up and configure it.
    Why Ethernet I hear you ask? The reason is that I'm going to need my main board (with the stm32F4 ) to communicate with my Beaglebone Black (embedded linux arm platform) which will be running Java
    and the fastest/easiest way in an out of Java is using sockets , in other words , Ethernet.
    The other reason is that using standard SPI/UART/I2C on embedded linux seem pretty cumbersome ( to me at least) .

    If it's too much of a hassle then I'll have to look for other ways.

    Thank in advance.

    Ok so I guess I should have looked before posting , but nevertheless I would appreciate feedback and ideas from others.
