When "I210 Ethernet Controller" is not used, is the pin no problem with "1-4"?

 

  1. PECLKP /N    :25pin,26pin ⇒NC
  2. PE_RP /N      :23pin,24pin ⇒NC
  3. PE_TP /N      :21pin,20pin ⇒NC
  4. PE_RST_N    : 17pin ⇒PD 10kΩ

Hello @YKiku​ 

 

The engineers state that no PCIE pins can left unconnected, they also want to clarify what do you mean by "I210 Ethernet Controller is not used", what feature is not being used?

​Thank you for reply.

I want to make 1port of 2port HW Ready.

I asked this time because I want to mount the IC and make it usable by remodeling.

 

If so, are there any problems with pins 1-4?

  1. PECLKP /N    :25pin,26pin ⇒PD 10kΩ
  2. PE_RP /N      :23pin,24pin ⇒PD 10kΩ
  3. PE_TP /N      :21pin,20pin ⇒NC
  4. PE_RST_N    : 17pin ⇒PD 10kΩ

Hello, @YKiku​:

 

Thanks for your clarification.

 

It is important to let you know that the mentioned configuration is invalidated because all PCI lines must be attached.

Hello , Intel Team,

​Thank you for reply.

I understand that PCIe requires all connections.

 

Please tell me last.

Stay in the RESET state,

does termination of the PCIe lane cause the IC to break in the short circuit?

 

Or there is no short circuit failure,

Not recommended because PCIe not connected is not assumed?

Thanks for your reply.

 

All PCI lines must be attached for the part to work properly.
