The DP83953 Repeater Interface Controller with Security Features and Integrated Transmit Filters (RIC2A) is an enhanced version of the DP83952 Repeater Interface Control ler with Security Features (RIC II). The RIC2A integrates driver and filter circuitry into the RIC II design.
The functionality of the RIC2A is essentially similar to the RIC II, but the pin definitions have been modified to reflect the added integrated drivers and filters. Additionally, the power and ground pin locations have been rearranged. Therefore, the RIC2A is not a drop in replacement for the RIC ll.
