Ethernet Protocol Stack Management IC CH395


Overview

CH395 is an Ethernet protocol stack management IC which provides Ethernet communication ability for MCU system. CH395 has built-in 10 / 100M Ethernet MAC and PHY and fully compatible with IEEE 802.3 protocol, it also has built-in protocol stack firmware such as PPPOE, IP, DHCP, ARP, ICMP, IGMP, UDP, TCP and etc. A MCU system can easily connect to Ethernet through CH395. CH395 supports 3 types of communication interfaces: 8-bit parallel port, SPI or USART. A MCU/DSP/MPU can use any of the above communication interfaces to operate CH395 for Ethernet communication. The application diagram for CH395 is shown below:

Features
