Hello,I have a pci express dev board and i would to make a giga ethernet connection with the marvell 88e1111 PHY transceiver (in copper mode). I have successfully instantiate tse mac block in stratixII device and i have build logic around for configuration. MAC loopback mode and also PHY loopback mode run successfully. But when i desactive all loopback mode and i try to established a link with network card on my pc, nothing happens... After configuration sequence of tse mac block, i make a reset of the marvell PHY (with the respect of all reset timing specifications find in the 88e1111 datasheet). for now, i didn't change nothing in internal registers of the marvell PHY. Hardware configuration (CONFIG[6..0]) are good for gigabit operation and auto negociation. What can i make to link pcie board and network pc card ? Must I send a specific mac frame just to link cards ? Could someone help me and tell me the exact registers configuration of the mac block or the good procedure ? Any help will be appreciate. Thanks in advance!
Hi, I actually have a similar problem with the TSE. I use the TSE reference design, but I can't make the TSE running with a PHY LOOP BACK. How did you manage to do that?Thanks for your help, Celine
