Ethernet port of the EM203A is of 100/10BaseT type. Onboard electronics of the EM203A do not include Ethernet magnetics, so magnetics circuitry must be connected externally to pins TX+, TX-, RX+, RX-, and AVCC. The AVCC pin outputs clean power for the magnetics circuitry, which is very sensitive to noise. The voltage on the AVCC output is 3.3V.

Do not interconnect the AVCC and VCC pins! This will permanently damage the EM203A.

 

One of the options for implementing the Ethernet front-end is to use RJ203 jack/magnetics module.
