Introduction

Collection of Ethernet-related components for gigabit, 10G, and 25G packet processing (8 bit and 64 bit datapaths). Includes modules for handling Ethernet frames as well as IP, UDP, and ARP and the components for constructing a complete UDP/IP stack. Includes MAC modules for gigabit and 10G/25G, a 10G/25G PCS/PMA PHY module, and a 10G/25G combination MAC/PCS/PMA module. Includes various PTP related components for implementing systems that require precise time synchronization. Also includes full cocotb testbenches that utilize cocotbext-eth.

For IP and ARP support only, use

ip_complete
(1G) or
ip_complete_64
(10G/25G).

For UDP, IP, and ARP support, use

udp_complete
(1G) or
udp_complete_64
(10G/25G).

Top level gigabit and 10G/25G MAC modules are

eth_mac_*
, with various interfaces and with/without FIFOs. Top level 10G/25G PCS/PMA PHY module is
eth_phy_10g
. Top level 10G/25G MAC/PCS/PMA combination module is
eth_mac_phy_10g
.

PTP components include a configurable PTP clock (

ptp_clock
), a PTP clock CDC module (
ptp_clock_cdc
) for transferring PTP time across clock domains, and a configurable PTP period output module for precisely generating arbitrary frequencies from PTP time.
