@Filipe-Madureira Yes, as expected. Onion's Ethernet Expansion provides only wired 10/100 network connectivity via a standard Ethernet cable.
Power over Ethernet
Power over Ethernet or PoE describes any of several standard or ad-hoc systems which pass electric power along with data on twisted pair Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electric power to devices...
Here you are an example Omega PoE Dock
I think this dock is too compact, too complicated, too expensive.
If I remember well @luz has made a nice custom dock with (P)PoE capabilities - with an appropriate Ethernet jack and some ~5 .. 39V to 3.3V (or 5V) voltage converter. Unfortunetely I can't find this post.
That command will completely disable Ethernet PHY, isn't it? It is the way, but I already use EPHY in my design, so no.
No, the ephy label in omega2-ctrl is misleading, it does not control ethernet phys, just the LED.
See AGPIO_CFG register for enabling/disabling ephys 1..4 (all together either ephy or GPIO, unfortunatly it is not possible to selectively enable only one of them -. ephy0 however can be used separately, with ephy1..4 in GPIO mode).
When I was designing a PCB for Omega 2S, I haven't had all the docs, and as a result I've used some of I2S pins, almost all SPI pins, etc. (literally, all the pins that could cause boot and other problems when they are pulled up/down) as a GPIO.
I was in the same situation a while ago when trying to find a usable wiring of my first Omega2 and Omega2S circuits, with all those various constraints...
@Maximilian-Gerhardt I was thinking to remove the jack and solder to the points. I didn't know about Ethernet ports having integrated transformers though. I found a close-up of the board and I see a transformer after, but it would be hard to know for sure without taking one apart.
Assuming the transformer is on the board and not the port, would that work?
