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.

 AX88196B -- Non-PCI 8/16-bit 10/100M Fast Ethernet Controller with MII Interface

The AX88196B is a non-PCI Ethernet controller with MII for the Embedded Ethernet applications. The AX88196B supports 8/16-bit SRAM-like host interface, providing a glue-less connection to most common embedded MCUs. The AX88196B integrates on-chip Fast Ethernet MAC and PHY, which is IEEE802.3 10Base-T and IEEE802.3u 100Base-TX compatible and 8Kx16 bits embedded SRAM for packet buffering to accommodate high bandwidth applications. The AX88196B has a wide array of features including support for Twisted Pair Crossover Detection and Auto-Correction, Wake-on-LAN power management and IEEE 802.3x and back-pressure flow control. The programming of AX88196B is simple and compatible with NE2000, so the users don't need any modification and can easily port the software drivers to many embedded systems very quickly. Combining these features with ASIX's free TCP/IP software stack for 8-bit microcontrollers, AX88196B provides the best Ethernet solution for embedded networking applications.
