Hi guys, I'm a student and I'm currently working on an Ethernet PHY project, and I feel a little bit lost.
So my question is :
  • What is the general software architecture for an Ethernet PHY driver ?

The software I'm using is Code Composer studio.
The micro-controller is : TM4C129

Thanks in advance.

I may be going out on a limb here, but the PHY layer, in my understanding, is how bits get serially put on the wire. As such there is little to no software architecture involved. The same is not true of the MAC layer or the Data Link Layer.
