Socket Type E

Ethernet PHY connection. Pins 6 to 9 are the dedicated transmit/receive lines to an Ethernet connector with integrated magnetics. Pins 4 and 5 are optional connections to the LEDs on the Ethernet connector.


Pin 1 Pin 2 Pin 3 Pin 4 Pin 5 Pin 6 Pin 7 Pin 8 Pin 9 Pin 10
+3.3V +5V [UN] LED1 (OPT) LED2 (OPT) TX D- TX  D+ RX D- RX D+ GND



A pin that is optionally supported by a mainboard or a module.


Modules must not connect to this pin if using this socket type. Mainboards can support multiple socket types on one socket, as long as individual pin functionalities overlap in a compatible manner, so that a pin from one socket type can overlap with a [UN] pin of another.

+3.3V Connection to the +3.3V power net.
+5V Connection to the +5V power net.
GND Connection the power ground net.

Connector Pin Numbering

Pins numbers for the male 10-pin connector standard Gadgeteer socket, as seen from above. In most cases, the ribbon cables will have the pin 1 conductor marked in red.
