How can Intel 82566 generate test pattern for Ethernet Conformance Tests?


I shall make the Intel ethernet adapter 82566DM mounted on the mainboard (FOXCONN LS-36) of a DELL desktop PC (Type DCSM) transmit test patterns for Ethernet (100BASE-TX) Conformance Tests.

In detail I shall make it permanently transmit

1th a scrambled IDLE stream (4B/5B=11111) as a basic signal for Mask Test

(ANSI X3.263-1995 (R2000) Annex J)

2nd a scrambled HALT line state for Jitter Test

(IEEE 803.2-2000, 25.4.5 & ANSI X3.263-1995 (R2000) 9.1.9)

3rd a 01010101 NRZ bit sequence for Duty Cycle Distortion

(ANSI X3.263-1995 (R2000) 9.1.8)


Who can help me or/and tell me how to manage that?
