Use MPLAB® Harmony to Access the PIC32MX/MZ MAC Address

The internal Ethernet Media Access Control (MAC) address of PIC32MX and PIC32MZ devices can be accessed with the following MPLAB® Harmony Application Programming Interfaces (APIs):

  1. void PLIB_ETH_MACGetAddress (ETH_MODULE_ID index, unsigned char bAddress[6] );
    • This will copy the MAC address to your buffer
  2. uint8_t PLIB_ETH_StationAddressGet(ETH_MODULE_ID index, uint8_t which);
    • The which parameter specifies which of the six 8-bit MAC address fields is being accessed.
    • Need to call this six times with which = 1 to 6, and store the result yourself.
    • The index parameter should be 0 .
    • The prototypes are available in the following file:
      • <install-dir>/framework/peripheral/eth/plib_eth.h

Please see the MPLAB Harmony Help file for more details.
