We have some mechanical restriction and we need to move ethernet on addons card. the two cards are in the same box but with link cable about 6cm.

Can we put the Ethernet PHY (LAN8720) on addon card or we need to put the PHY near the LPC1768 and move RJ45 only on addons card ?

Thanks for your reply, Philippe.
