Using DP83848 modules as Ethernet interface for custom LPC1768 mbed boards
Since I have recently designed a low cost Home made mbed board with LPC1768 microcontroller I thought it would be nice to add also a low cost Ethernet connectivity. Because the original LPC1768 mbed board was featuring a DP83848 chip I decided to check what was available with that regard on the eBay. It turned out that nowadays there are available cheap (about 5$) DP83848 modules from various sellers. For more details about DP83848 see the Application Report.

Unfortunately the RX_ER pin was not available at the module's connector. So I took a thin wire, soldering iron and connected it to one of the NC (Not Connected) pins (it wasn't that difficult after all).
