Looking for BSDL files for X710/X557/82580EB.
I've read that an NDA may be needed. If someone contacts me I will send the NDA so I can receive the BSDL files.
Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.
The Intel X557 10GBASE-T [Coppervale] Boundary Scan Description Language [BSDL] File document # 559446, Intel 82580 Gigabit Ethernet Controller [Barton Hills] BSDL document # 427919, Intel Ethernet XL710 10 GbE/ 40 GbE Controller [Fortville] BSDL document # 543847, and Intel Ethernet XXV710 BSDL document # 572653 can be found when you are logged into your Resource & Design Center (RDC) privileged account at the following websites:

I was able to register for RDC and access the above links, except for the document# 427919. For that link I get an error:

For everyone's benefit, the problem was resolved via support email chain:

Since downloading the Intel X557 10GBASE-T [Coppervale] Boundary Scan Description Language [BSDL] File document # 559446, I have had some trouble getting the BSDL files to work. There are 4 different BSDL files provided for the same X557-AT2 device. I am not familiar with devices requiring more than one BSDL. My JTAG software (Corelis ScanExpress) ran into errors when trying to use the default files. The files are:
I attempted using the first 2 from that list, and got an error about "no connection from TDI to TDO." I sent my project to Corelis for support and they said they didn't know the structure of the device, there is nothing in the datasheet about it. But they tried editing the BSDL to connect TDO of port 0 to TDI of port 1.:
-- MOD Make connection between port0 tdo to port 1 tdi
"TDO : port01_tdi_tdo," &
-- "TDO : L15," &
If this is not done then port 0 and port 1 do not connect and it produces an error. However, what they did was a complete guess - and I don't yet have the hardware to test their solution yet, so I figured I would come here and see if anyone can offer me guidance on using BSDLs for the X557.
