Dear Experts,

We are looking for an FPGA that supports AVB, and come across this,

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/docs/programmable/683458/current/hard-processor-system-hps.html

Please clarify does this AVB protocol will be handled only FPGA logic or HPS running with an operating system like Linux can handle this.

Thanks

Hi Kumar M,

 

According to the information in the UG, Agilex 7 has the feature that support the Ethernet AVB. For further information, please do refer link below Section 11, table 28, pg 40, https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/docs/programmable/683458/current/hard-processor-system-in-socs.html .

Hi @ZiYing_Intel ,

Thanks for sharing the link which tells HPS supports Ethernet AVB. We are looking for the steps on how to enable the AVB feature & test on the HPS Linux kernel.

Dear @ZiYing_Intel ,

 

Thanks for sharing this link.

As the link says for AVB,

System Requirements

This tutorial has been validated on two desktop machines with Intel(R) Ethernet Controller I210 connected back-to-back and Linux kernel version 4.19.

 

Our queries are,

  1. Would this be running on Agilex FPGA AGFB014R24B2E2EV or its series?
  2. Agilex device says that it supports AVB, can you elaborate on what all Ethernet standards would be covered in it?
  3. AVB protocol is mainly for audio, and video streaming, along with this would it also support driving customized packets like udp?

Thanks
