TSE_Driver Architecture

Dear Friends, 

 

In TSE Software Driver Architecture (ug_Ethernet), there is a Memory Block at the bottom of page 141 ( ug_Ethernet page 141),  

 

Is this is External memory, or Packet memory or some thing else ..? 

 

regards

This memory block is not part of TSE itself. It is the memory device available in your system: sdram, sram or onchip memory.

Thanking you for your reply. 

 

It mean this is external to TSE ,  

 

Is packet loss accure if Processor NIOS-II/f received high speed packets?. or in other way how do i increase the processor speed?. or NIOS-II/f had sufficient speed to handle all incoming packets? 

 

NIOS-II/f having system clock is 125Mhz

Besides processor frequency, there are a number of factors affecting maximum speed achieved with data transfer. For example: 

- system architecture 

- network transport protocol  

- dma and cache 

- Nios operating system and number of other tasks running  

You may refer to AN440 for a comprehensive description of methods for improving performance of ethernet applicaitons.
