Hello, @chandru​:

 

We suggest you review the information of the Flash Write Enable (FWE) Control bits stated on page 80 of the Intel(R) Ethernet Controller I210 Datasheet document # 333016? This document can be found at:

 

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/datasheets/i210-ethernet-controller-datasheet.pdf

 

On the other hand,  the information stated in the Intel(R) LANConf User Manual and EEUpdate.txt files included in the DOCS file of the Intel(R) Network Connections Tools 24.0 PV LAN Software Tools document # 348742 may answer your last question.

Hi Mæcenas,

Yes, you are right 513655 is for SGMII

but i am working on Copper interface, PC having one more RJ45, for that when i am using ethtool , i am getting Mii port

for your information: i210cs with internal phy (Ethernet (RJ45) to PCIe)

To flash this one what i need to be done?

with LANConf tool in SV menu, not able to set link mode to Copper, by default it is taking SerDes

 

Thanks and Regards

Hello, @chandru​:

 

Thanks for your updates.

 

We have reviewed your communication of the past January 3th, 2020; could you please clarify if your consultations are related to the WGI210AT or WGI210IT part number? Because the part number stated in the description is different that the showed in the attached picture.

 

Waiting for your clarification.

Hi Mæcenas,

 

Thanks for quick response

 

Ordered part WGI210IT S LJXT for industrial grade component

 

I think both are same

WGI210AT indicates commercial grade part and WGI210IT indicate Industrial grade part, is it correct ?

 

Or we received any wrong part ?

 

 

Thanks and Regards

Hello, @chandru​:

 

Thanks for your clarification.

 

You are correct, please refer to the information stated on page 3 of the Intel(R) Ethernet Controller I210 Enhances Network Connectivity: Product Brief document #327935 that can be found at:

 

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/embedded/products/networking/i210-ethernet-controller-family-brief.html

 

On the other hand, the proper image to program any i210 Controller should be selected by the connection, protocol, flash size, and expansion ROM. You can find the list of the cited characteristics of each image on page 3 of the release note included in the Intel(R) Ethernet Controller I210 and I211-AT: Production NVM Images document # 513655.

Hi Mæcenas,

 

Thank you for your support

 

we validated 1000Mbps bandwidth. Now we are getting almost 900 Mbps . problem is with our host PC having both windows and Linux

we changed system it works

 

Now we are planing to validate with ZCU102 board. ZCU102 evaluation board having Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC part number xczu9eg-ffvb1156-2-e

 

Whether we can validate I210IT device in MPSoC processor ? and which driver we have to use ?

 

 

Thanks and Regards

Hello, @chandru​:

 

Thanks for your updates.

 

The i210 should work with just about any processor that supports a PCI bus. 

 

On the other hand, the driver used is Operating System (OS) specific.

@Mæcenas_INTEL​.
