This page describes all changes made to the nw_drv_eth_ti_emac package, Network Driver for Triple Speed Ethernet IP core interfaced to Intel NIOS II CPU, since its release.
1.8 (2021-02-09, 15:00):
- Updated to work with nw_drv_base v5.6.
- Warnings removed.
1.7 (2020-07-15, 15:20)
- Separated psp_tse_eth_start_receive() function into psp_tse_eth_add_buf() and psp_tse_eth_start_receive() to fill the DMA descriptor from add_buf and then start the receive separately (eg. from the interrupt).
- Introduced psp_tse_eth_receive() function to be able to convert between DMA<->CPU addresses in the PSP.
- Added PSP_TSE_ETH_BUFFER_CACHED configuration option to PSP config file to be able to switch on/off data cache for ETH buffer.
1.6 (2020-07-13, 15:00)
- tse_eth_drv_start() calls eth_phy_set_mode() after eth_phy_reset() to set up the PHY to start an auot-negotiation process when the cable is connected.
- tse_drv_rf_timer() PHY link status handling logic was modified to process "CONNECTED" or "DISCONNECTED" states.
1.5 (2020-06-19, 11:00)
- Code cleanup.
1.4 (2020-06-18, 14:20)
- Fixed null pointer issue: PSP init was called with a null pointer.
- Removed cache related operations, because it is handled in the PSP.
- Moved all HW related functionality to PSP to be able to use the Altera driver.
- PSP_ISR is used to install/enable/disable DMA interrupts.
- RF timer calls psp_tse_eth_mac_enable/disable() instead of calling psp_tse_eth_start().
- RF timer polls link status and starts auto-negotiation in a non-blocking way.
- Received frame status is properly reported in tse_eth_drv_receive().
- Removed unused code and configuration options
1.3 (2019-09-25, 16:43):
- Improvements related to accidental packet loss issue.
1.2 (2019-08-28, 13:06):
- Link status detected properly now.
1.1 (2019-08-10, 01:37):
- Initial revision. Known issues:
- Fails to receive fragmented UDP frames.
- Only two Rx DMA descriptor and one Tx DMA descriptor can exist.
- Performance issue: max. 640 kB/sec is achievable.
- Driver and PSP cleanup needed.
