I have a schematic of Ethernet Transformer that supports POE, and 2.5GBT. I plan on using Ethernet with transformer on my PCB to connect to Network Switch.
Are pin VC12 13, VC36 14, VC45 15, VC78 16 DC signal? Where do this pins connect to ?
What about TRCT1, TRCT 2, TRCT, 3, TRCT 4? Where are they connected to?
Also, what is common mode filter that is displayed on the schematic. I have heard that ethernet with transformer are used for isolation. Can anyone explain what does the mean?
What else do I need to know before using the Ethernet with Transformer.
Any help is appreciated.
