Thanks again for all of your support here in this thread: BCM5396 EEPROM file template
We have since moved forward a little with the BCM5396, but we are struggling to get the SERDES port up and running.
Are you able to help with a list of register changes required to switch ports
to SERDES mode.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for getting back to me.
The SERDES connects over a backplane to another SERDES interface, no phys
However we do now have a
development… the hardware engineer says our MDC/MDIO has a
wiring error, so he has made a strapping change (AUTO_POL_DIS) and
this has allowed the SERDES links to establish connection, so we are moving
forward once again.
