Intel® ICH 8/9/10 and 82566/82567/82562V: Developers Manual


This document serves as a software developer’s manual for the Intel® ICH8/ICH9/ICH10 (MAC) GbE LAN Controller and the Intel® 82566/82567/82562V Physical Layer Transceiver (PHY). It can be used as a reference for software device driver developers, board designers, test engineers, or anyone else who might need specific ...technical or programming information.


The ICH8/ICH9/ICH10 MAC and 82566/82567/82562V PHY are highly integrated, high-performance Ethernet LAN controllers for 1000 Mb/s, 100 Mb/s, and 10 Mb/s data rates. They are optimized for LAN on Motherboard (LOM) designs, enterprise networking, and Internet appliances that use the PCI architecture (Revision 1.0a). The Ethernet LAN controllers support all IEEE 802.3 receive and transmit MAC functions as well as physical-layer circuitry for 1000Base-T, 100Base-TX, and 10Base-T applications (IEEE 802.3, 802.3q, 802.3u, 802.3x, 802.3ab).
