Hello,@carlosx.e.aguilar.mecena (Intel).

Thank you for your reply.

Sorry,We read the each section of the datasheet. But we could not understand the contents written there.

Could tell me the contents written there easy?

Can I2C(SMBUS) of I210 access the external ROM?

If I2C of I210 can access the external ROM, Could tell me how to access the external ROM?

 

Best regard.

​Hello, @YUchi1​:

 

Thanks for your update.

 

The i210-IT is a copper interface that does not utilize the I2C interface.

 

I2C is a side band connection for SFP modules for link configuration.

 

There are no alternate uses for this link.

 

We hope that this information is useful.

 

Best regards,

@Mæcenas_INTEL​.

Hello,@Mæcenas_INTEL​ :

Thank you for reply.

 

We understood that I2C of I210-IT can not access the External ROM and can not access internal resister of I210.

Best regard.
