Are there software tools for evaluation of the PHYs?
Hi Catherine, Yes there is.
When using the ADI evaluation board for ADIN1300, ADIN1200 with the ADuCM3029 MDIO interface dongle, there is an accompanying Software GUI which provides the user with easy access to all registers in the PHY and allows user do an initial evaluation of the part prior to developing own hardware and software.
You can have a glimpse on the software by clicking this link:
There is also a Linux driver for the ADIN1200 and ADIN1300. As at beginning of Sept, the code is upstream in the netdev Linux subsystem. It's not yet in Linux mainline, but will get there over coming months.
