Fast Ethernet Port Subsystem
The Fast Ethernet port subsystem, shown in Figure 3-3, includes two SEEQ 10/100 EtherMACs tied to external FIFOs and controlled by a Xilinx FPGA and PALS. Each SEEQ MAC attaches to an MMI connector through its MII interface. The MMI connector supports a set of modules that provide fiber and UTP connections.

Not totally sure on the HALO matching transformer, the sticker peeled up most of the lettering, and I had to try reading the lettering backwards. Sorry...
