I am designing a custom carrier board for the Apalis TK1. I understand that the TK1’s Ethernet controller is an Intel i210-AT. We’re planning on connecting it directly to an Ethernet switch, via PCB traces, over a very short distance (< 10 cm). The switch being considered is a Microsemi VSC7511.
Do you have any information regarding whether this is possible, and if so, the termination network to be used in lieu of magnetics?
