LS1012A MDIO Interface

Hello NXP Team,


I'm designing a custom board based on LS1012A which has an ethernet switch IC and another ethernet PHY.

I have 3 MDIO interfaces in total while my processor supports only one MDIO interface.


I have read that an MDIO interface can manage up to 32 PHYs with different PHY addresses.

I want to confirm if MDIO driver of LS1012A can support the connection to more than 1 PHYs on MDIO interface?

Can I connect 3 MDIO interfaces of different PHYs to the MDIO interface on LS1012A?


Please confirm.
