Sure it's possibleIn the hw you only need to duplicate the ethernet controller (TSE or whatever) and the related components, like DMAs or descriptor memory. The sw part can be a bit more tricky: it depends on how you use the Ethernet interfaces; I mean tcp stack, raw ethernet packet rx/tx or other.

Ok, thank you for your answer.I tried to create design with two igor mac (PHY DP83848) and it looks well. But can you suggest me PHY with gigabit speed ? I use DP83848, but it is 10/100Mbps. In some boards from Terasic they use Marvell 88E1111, but now i can not find in any electronic supplier - Digikey, Mouser ... Thank you again. Jan
