Question on MDIO frame and associated MDC
I have a question on - Clause 45 -
MDIO Interface: (Could apply
to the original clause 22 also).
1. The Management frame structure
shows an idle bit as the last bit
for each kinds of frames. Can we
assume that a complete frame
will always have this idle bit
following the address/data fields
and hence have an associated MDC
clock for this idle bit ?
2. Can we assume that this last
bit has to be provided before the
frame action (like write,
read etc) is executed ?
Thanks in advance for the clarification.
