I need to make a test nail bed for a board that has an Ethernet interface:
- in the bottom of the board there is access to the socket ethernet pins
- i could place test nails under the ethernet socket to access these pins
- i would like to connect this pins to another board , ex raspberry & test conectivity.
The problem: there seems to be a transformer embedded in the socket , so if i connect my testpoints BEFORE the socket , i would be missing the transformator and impedance adaptation.
Are there similar transformer like this but Without socket that i can add to my nailbed board???
any ideas on how doing this in a clean way ???
