2.6. Low Latency E-Tile 40G Ethernet Design Example Registers

Table 5.   Low Latency E-Tile 40G Ethernet Hardware Design Example Register MapLists the memory mapped register ranges for the hardware design example. You access these registers with the reg_read and reg_write functions in the System Console.
Word Offset Register Type
0x300-0x3FF PHY registers
0x400-0x4FF TX MAC registers
0x500-0x5FF RX MAC registers
0x800-0x8FF Statistics Counter registers - TX direction
0x900-0x9FF Statistics Counter registers - RX direction
0x1000-1016 Packet Client registers
Table 6.  Packet Client Registers You can customize the Low Latency E-Tile 40G Ethernet hardware design example by programming the packet client registers.





HW Reset Value


0x1008 Packet Size Configure [29:0] Specify the transmit packet size in bytes. These bits have dependencies to PKT_GEN_TX_CTRL register.
  • Bit [29:16]: Specify the upper limit of the packet size in bytes. This is only applicable to incremental mode.
  • Bit [13:0]:
    • For fixed mode, these bits specify the transmit packet size in bytes.
    • For incremental mode, these bits specify the incremental bytes for a packet.
0x25800040 RW
0x1009 Packet Number Control [31:0] Specify the number of packets to transmit from the packet generator. 0xA RW
0x1010 PKT_GEN_TX_CTRL [7:0]
  • Bit [0]: Reserved.
  • Bit [1]: Packet generator disable bit. Set this bit to the value of 1 to turn off the packet generator, and reset it to the value of 0 to turn on the packet generator.
  • Bit [2]: Reserved.
  • Bit [3]: Has the value of 1 if the IP core is in MAC loopback mode; has the value of 0 if the packet client uses the packet generator.
  • Bit [5:4]:
    • 00: Random mode
    • 01: Fixed mode
    • 10: Incremental mode
  • Bit [6]: Set this bit to 1 to use 0x1009 register to turn off packet generator based on a fixed number of packets to transmit. Otherwise, bit [1] of PKT_GEN_TX_CTRL register is used to turn off the packet generator.
  • Bit [7]:
    • 1: For transmission without gap in between packets.
    • 0: For transmission with random gap in between packets.
0x6 RW
0x1011 Destination address lower 32 bits [31:0] Destination address (lower 32 bits) 0x56780ADD RW
0x1012 Destination address upper 16 bits [15:0] Destination address (upper 16 bits) 0x1234 RW
0x1013 Source address lower 32 bits [31:0] Source address (lower 32 bits) 0x43210ADD RW
0x1014 Source address upper 16 bits [15:0] Source address (upper 16 bits) 0x8765 RW
0x1016 PKT_CL_LOOPBACK_RESET [0] MAC loopback reset. Set to the value of 1 to reset the design example MAC loopback. 1'b0 RW
