Driver basic operation 5. In this chapter will see the initialization phase, how the controller uses the host memory and the 2 threads launched at the initialization time. Adding a Default Route 4. On Intel target, the chip specific registers can be accessed via 2 methods: Then the driver connects an interrupt handler to the interrupt line driven by the Ethernet controller the only interrupt which will be treated is the receive interrupt and launches 2 threads: This board includes an Ethernet controller based on a DEC chip.

We use Netboot tool to load our development from a server to the target via an ethernet network. First version of this document.
Note that you must always provide room for the CRC field, even when this attribute is set to 1. Because the DEC chip uses the host memory to store the incoming frame and because the DEC configuration registers are mapped into the PCI address space, we must ensure that the data read or written by the host processor are the ones written or read by the DEC device in the host memory and not old data stored in the cache memory.
Then the driver waits for incoming frame to give to the protocol stack or outcoming frame to send on the physical link.
Many Ethernet adapter cards use the Tulip chip. The frame that is currently about to be sent or received. Early versions used National transcievers, but later versions are depopulated ZX boards.
Ethernet MAC address of the network interface. Write the Driver Statistic-Printing Function 4.
7. DEC Driver — RTEMS Networking User Manual (master) documentation
Write the Driver Start Function. This DEC chip uses the host memory to store the incoming Ethernet frames and the descriptor of these frames. Adding a Default Route 4.
Write the Driver Initialization Function. To achieve it, we have chosen a Motorola MCP board. Attribute used to send a packet packwt the network device. DEC Driver 7. DEC Driver Introduction 7. We plan to port the DEC driver for the Netboot tool. Command and Variable Index Index. Here is a non exhaustive list of adapters which support this driver: The difference between a receive and a transmit buffer descriptor is located in the status and control bits fields.
Driver basic operation 5. This allows not to lose too much memory or not to disable cache memory for a page which contains other data than buffer, which could decrease performance. State of the interrupt paacket. State information of the serial ROM. To reference these buffers to the Packte chip we use a buffer descriptors ring. On Intel, the memory region cache management is available only if the paging unit is enabled.
The packet that is currently about to be sent or received. The descriptor structure is defined in the Buffer Descriptor Figure. Pafket board includes an Ethernet controller based on a DEC chip.
Write the Driver Interrupt Handler 3. Here is a non exhaustive list of adapters which support this driver:.
Packeet have used this paging mechanism, with 4Kb page. It is possible to override the packet by assigning this attribute. Currently, this tool does not support the DEC board. By reading or writing these registers, a driver can obtain information about the type of the board, the interrupt it uses, the mapping of the chip specific registers, ….
