Using USB to Ethernet converter with iMX RT 1050

Hello,

I have seen some information that we can directly connect an external ethernet cable to iMX RT 1050, using a USB to Ethernet(RJ-45) converter.Can we use any kind of USB to Ethernet converter for the iMX RT MCUs? I have found that the most compatible configuration is the ECM(Ethernet Control Model) for most of the devices.
Also, are they any examples of processing ethernet over USB?

 

Thank You

Hello,

The i.MXRT should be the USB Host with CDC support. On the MCUXpresso SDK v28.0 for EVKB-MIMXRT1050, it is available an example with such characteristics under “usb_examples->host_cdc_bm”.
This example asks for a USB-UART Device, so, it will be required applying the proper changes to work with USB-Ethernet and with the desired functionality.

Have a nice day.
