Hi Crisselle C,

Customers use X550-AT Ethernet controllers and design their own boards. It is planned to design 1 network port, so X550-AT is suitable.
Now I am considering the chip soldering matters. Is the firmware of X550-AT configured when it leaves the factory?
Do you support online configuration of firmware after welding?

Looking forward to your help, thank you
