Arria V SoC + Intel10Gb ethernet mac driver

Hello,

 

I've seen the an739 appnote:

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/an/an739.pdf

 

This appnote comes with a reference design for the Arria V SoC evaluation Board. In the reference design there are:

+ the whole VHDL/verilog IP and source files

+ the image file of the rootfs

 

I've investigated the rootfs, found the dtb, and reversed the dtb to its dts file.

What I've noticed is that the dts relates the ethernet interfaces to the qse-10G-1.0 driver.

This driver (developed by altera) communicates with the Intel FPGA 10G IP MAC core.

 

In my project I need this driver as well but I can't find it there:

https://github.com/altera-opensource/linux-socfpga/tree/master/drivers

 

Where I can fetch it ?

 

Is it possible to have the source file used for the appnote ?

 

thanks

Hi, Did you watch the following video that describes how to use this reference design: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDb-N_oVMrM It is a useful video about this application note. Regards.

Hello,

 

the point is not how to use the reference design. I need the driver used in the reference since I need to add the same functionality (1588) to an existing project for one of our clients.

 

The reference design ships all the vhdl/verilog sources but doesn't ship the linux kernel driver sources.

 

I've seen that the driver used with the eth interface is called "qse-10G-1.0" but this driver is not listed in your github repository.

 

Is it possible to have the driver or instead the whole sources files used to compile the reference design software image ?

 

thanks

Hi, Here is the supported drivers at Intel programmable solution groups (PSG), https://rocketboards.org/foswiki/Documentation/LinuxDrivers As this driver isn't in this list, we regret to tell you that we don't have support for this driver under PSG. Please contact the manufacturer of the PHY which is INTEL support https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support.html. Regards.

Hello,

 

I'll follow your suggestion. I'm very disappointed that the source files of the application note are not fully available. What am I supposed to to do with them if I can't use them in a custom project ? Also i do not fully understand why do I have to bother the PHY manufacturer since the driver is developed for the INTEL 10G IP.

 

thank you for your help !

Hello, I apologies for not having the driver you asked about, I've shared with you all the supported drivers that available in my previous comment.
