Hello friends, I Have just started going through ethernet.my doubt is what is the main functionality of Ethernet MAC??? In switch controller implementation on FPGA does 4 tranceivers require 4 Ethernet MAC's???if so why??Because the source and the destination systems will have ethernet controller and MAC built in???please answer these questions.It's haunting me. Thanks. Regards, Hema.

Hi all, I want to implement ethernet but I have no exprience about ethernet. Can you please recommend some thing. I can use precessor (M16C) or FPGA. I haven't got FPGA development board yet and maybe i can't buy because i have money problem. I think if I use FPGA I don't need ethernet controller If I can write it :). I have try some projects like as uart, I2C on the Nuhorizons CR2 Developme...

Hello everyone, I am trying to implement ethernet MAC on a fpga using vhdl. I have a transmit module which generates the ethernet frame and transmits to the PC through the ethernet cable. The ethernet frame consists of preamble, sfd, destination(MAC), source(MAC), length,data,crc. I am using ethereal to detect this frame I definitely think that my crc is right. But i am not able to de...

Hi All, I have a embedded desig where I communicate with two boards via Fast ethernet. The design is very simple, the packets are generated from a fpga and sent to the ethernet phy on MII. In the new design I'd like to replace the ethernet phy with a VSDL2 chipset, so I need only one twisted pair and for supporting more than 100 m. Has anybody did something similar? IMO it should be very ...

I don't know that my fpga is capable (spartan 3e 100k), but I thought I might like to try to do ethernet first.

Does anyone know of any like this, or even of the one I speak? (Might ...
