ASIX Electronics Corporation Notice USB to LAN products 
Dear Customer:

If you got some problems on ASIX USB to LAN products, please download the How to identify authentic ASIX USB to LAN Products document to double check if your USB to LAN device includes an Non-authentic ASIX USB to LAN solution inside or not? If yes, please contact the manufacturer of your USB to LAN device to get proper drivers instead. ASIX DOES NOT GUARANTEE AND PROVIDE ANY SUPPORT FOR THOSE NON-AUTHENTIC ASIX PRODUCTS.

  Yes, I understand.

 AX88796A -- Non-PCI 8/16-bit 10/100M Fast Ethernet Controller with Embedded PHY

A The AX88796A Fast Ethernet Controller is a high performance and highly integrated local CPU bus Ethernet Controller with embedded 10/100Mbps PHY/Transceiver and 8K*16 bit SRAM. The AX88796A supports both 8 bit and 16 bit local CPU interfaces include MCS-51 series, 80186 series, and MC68K series CPU and ISA bus. The AX88796A implements both 10Mbps and 100Mbps Ethernet function based on IEEE802.3 / IEEE802.3u LAN standard. The AX88796A also provides an extra IEEE802.3u compliant media-independent interface (MII) to support other media applications. Using MII interface, Home LAN PHY type media can be supported.

As well as, the chip also provides optional Standard Print Port (parallel port interface), can be used for printer server device or treat as simple general I/O port.

Q0001: What are the differences between the AX88796A and AX88796?
A0001: Please refer to "Appendix C: Notice of AX88796A" of AX88796A datasheet for the differences between AX88796A and AX88796 and some design notes of AX88796A applications. Basically, you can just replace the AX88796 IC with AX88796A IC by using the same AX88796 driver on your existing AX88796 PCB board directly. If you have any problems to implement AX88796A on your existing AX88796 applications, please contact ASIX Sales ( for further support.
