Dual i210 implimentation

I have a new base board design which has x2 i210 devices. The base board is also a carrier for a qseven computer-on-module, which has an Intel Atom E3825 CPU, also supporting an Intel i210.

This is effectively x3 i210 devices on a common board.

Please advise which configuration register(s) require change to support multiple i210's on a common base board and any other critical configuration details.

Hi Amtote,

 

 

Further checking, there is no register for the i210 to change as each

 

device shows up separately on the PCIe device tree a a unique device. The driver looks to each PCI-e device as a separate ID to assign resources. It is just like putting two identical cards into PCI-e slots.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback.

So there is no requirement to provide external NVM configuration device for each i210 ?

Thanks

Hi Amote,

 

 

Good day. I210 can be used with an external flash device but it requires an iNVM image still.

 

 

Thanks,
