Get Ethernet up and running on your FPGA

The Enclustra Gigabit Ethernet Application Note explains how to set up Gigabit Ethernet

In a lot of FPGA-based applications Ethernet is the preferred means for communication with a host. The Gigabit Ethernet Application Note gives an overview of the set up process for Gigabit Ethernet on Enclustra hardware. This includes obtaining the individual MAC addresses of the hardware in use, setting the correct RGMII timing constraints and configuring the PHY delays via MDIO.

The quickest and easiest way to obtain the MAC address of a module is with the Enclustra Module Configuration Tool (MCT): Only a USB connection is required to access and configure various baseboard and module properties. How to configure Ethernet bare metal, with U-boot and Linux is also described in detail in the application note.

I2C what?

Jan 25, 2021

enclustra i2c application note
The I2C bus needs only 2 wires for bi-directional communication

A master can communicate with up to 1008 nodes at speeds of up to 5 Mbit/s.

The I2C (Inter-Integrated Circuit) protocol was invented 1982 by Philips. Thanks to it's simplicity and use of only 2 wires it is still very popular and widely used. Every Enclustra Module uses at least one I2C bus to communicate with several chips. Be it EEPROM, Real Time Clock (RTC) or clock generator: They are all connected via I2C to the FPGA.

The Enclustra I2C Application Note describes different possibilities to make use of the I2C bus to interface with the different I2C devices on Enclustra hardware. The Application Note gives an overview of the I2C bus in general and lists all the different devices present on Enclustra hardware and their capabilities (in terms of I2C communication).

enclustra wishes a merry christmas

The year 2020 will soon be history – finally. Corona has shaken up the economy, workflows and communication. Many self-evident processes became laborious and complex overnight. Thanks to the great effort and high flexibility of everyone, fortunately most of the problems could be compensated.

Despite working from home and an increased coordination effort – and of course our loyal customers, that is you – Enclustra is able to close 2020 successfully.

We’d like to thank you for putting your trust in us. We look forward to a successful collaboration in 2021. The entire Enclustra team wishes you a merry Christmas, a happy new year and a prosperous and healthy 2021.

The Embedded Vision Platform

The fastest and easiest way to realize an embedded vision application is to use a System-on-Module.

Are you looking for a platform for your next embedded vision project? The search is over: The Enclustra Mercury+ XU8 and Mercury+ XU9 System-on-Modules (SOM) abstract the high complexity of the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC EV devices and reduce time-to-market from years to months.

The SOMs integrate the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC EV with fast DDR4 ECC SDRAM, eMMC flash, quad SPI flash, dual Gigabit Ethernet PHY and dual USB 3.0 on a tiny footprint of just 74 × 54 mm, and thus formin a complete and powerful embedded vision platform.
