Does the Triple Speed Ethernet IP Core support RMII

Hi everyone, 

 

i have a question concerning the Triple Speed Ethernet IP Core. 

 

Is it possible to connect the TSE MAC and the PHY with RMII interface?  

 

Because i found the TSE MAC isn't compatible with RMII at all. But maybe there is a solution to make it compatible.  

 

I use the DB4CGX15 Cyclone IV GX Dev.Board. and its DB4CGX-PHY2 Addon Board, which only supports Ethernet connection with RMII.  

 

Thank you

You must use a MII to RMII converter. 

Here is a VHDL sample code.

there is RGMII mode, they should be compatible?

Thank you very much Cris72, i will try your code for converting both interfaces.  

 

But somehow i made it now to transmit and receive raw ethernet packets with "Ostinato", but i have to check if the data being received is correct.  

I use the RGMII interface, which didn't work the whole time. Somehow strange. 

 

Thanks again

AFAIK DB4CGX_PHY2 addon features a 10/100Mb PHY, while RGMII is for Gigabit. 

Probably it can be also connected to 10/100Mb, since you are using it. Anyway, implementing it in a MAC which actually doesn't need Gb means you waste fpga resources.
