Can't get LAN8720 fully working

Postby Jami17 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 11:09 pm

I am using LAN8720A along with ESP-WROOM-32 on our custom PCB.
Clock is generated by GPIO17 and connected to GPIO0 and XTAL1.

I'm using the ethernet_example source with the current version of ESP-IDF

LAN8720A works fine when using the serial management commands.
But TCP/IP does not work at all.
I am not sure whether it's a h/w or s/w problem.

The lines RXDx / TXDx / CRS / show no activity (viewed with scope) when the transformer is connected to an ethernet line that carries some traffic to other tcp/ip-devices.
Shouldn't RXD0 / 1 at least show some activity then ?

The clock signal amplitude is 1.2Vpp. Is that perhaps too small for GPIO0 ?
I expected it to be near 3.3Vp since GPIO17 is powerful enough.
At least it's large enough for LAN8720A

This is the verbose log:

Could a nice soul compare the LAN8720 Registers with his version?
Perhaps there's a difference?

Or are there any other issues that I may have overlooked?

I have a similar problem with the lan8720. Everything appears to working from the hardware standpoint, and I get notifications when I plug an ethernet cable into the device, but I never get assigned an IP address and if I give it a static IP address it cannot be pinged. This is using the ethernet example file.

Here's a verbose dump of my system ... it's the ethernet example, with verbose logging and the appropriate Example Config for my hardware. Also, I'm calling phy_lan8720_dump_registers() from inside eth_task().

I see plenty of activity on the RXD0 and RXD1 pins, but TXD0 and TXD1 go low when the application starts, and they remain low for the duration.

Re: Can't get LAN8720 fully working

You should maybe check the stuff on the link below.
https://sautter.com/blog/ethernet-on-es ... g-lan8720/

Are you using a pre-manufatured LAN8720 board, or custom PCB?

The Smart programmer uses his google/github powers first ;)

On my system it’s custom, dunno about the others in this thread. Given that in two posts the 8720 registers are identical, and on two systems the TXD0 & TXD1 pins go low and remain that way for the duration, to me that suggests either a problem in the MAC, or a perpheral conflct in the ESP32 that affects the ESP32’s TXD0 and TXD1 pins. These are both software problems.

While I am no 8720 expert, it looks like the PHY is working correctly ...

When connecting another TCP/IP device in parallel to the LAN wires and pinging that one from a PC, I do see activity on Rxd0/1 lines. So that looks ok. So perhaps the ESP32 does not get the 50MHz clock? Therefore I inserted a buffer to get a better clock. But that did not help at all.
I also get the conclusion that there is a software problem in the current ESP-IDF.
Any help from Expressif ?

A bit odd because it forces you to check this subject again & again.
Not very ergonomic !

I know it is a late reply, but I do not think that the problem is solved?
So I have also two layouts, both have an LAN8720 as PHY device.
Both of the Layouts have the same schematics, but the one works, the other does not work.
With exactly the same log output as you described (on both devices, the working and the not working one)
The only difference: there is no packet visible on the ethernet (Wireshark or similar).

First thing to try is to force a 10Mbit link. If this works -> your layout is not good enough to get 100Mbit working :)
So far my conclusion about this topic.
If you got it working now, please feel free to share, because I think it is a common problem when designing proper layouts with ethernet.

The problem I finally solved.
I used a second board and that worked fine. It seemed the first board had a LAN8720 solder problem, I could not find out in detail the reason, and gave up as it was a one time problem. So after all no s/w problem at all.

I got it working now, too!
For everyone who has the same problem:

It seems the „no network“ problem is related to GPIO0 as clock output. I just manually connect GPIO16 or 17, changed the code to use this pin instead of IO0 and everything works as expected.
I do not know if the specifications of IO0 are different compared to the other pins, but it seems to be the reason..
