Hi all,


We consider the use of IEEE1588 for time synchronization in the Ethernet function.

We know i.MX6Q datasheet(MAC) is written as supporting IEEE1588.
To use IEEE1588, should external PHY-IC support IEEE1588 function also not only i.MX6Q?


Also if PHY-IC should support IEEE1588, do you know recommended PHY-IC product other than "AR8031"?


Best Regards,
