Frequently asked questions

Do I need any purchased IP to use the Ethernet FMC?

The typical application of the Ethernet FMC requires an IP for the MAC, such as the Xilinx Tri-mode Ethernet MAC (which is not free) or the OpenCores TEMAC (which is free). Some FPGAs have hard integrated TEMACs which generally don’t require a license to use. So the answer to this question depends on your FPGA and your choice of MAC.

The example designs provided on this website use the Xilinx AXI Ethernet Subsystem IP, which can be evaluated for free by obtaining an evaluation license from Xilinx. See Getting a license for the Xilinx Tri-mode Ethernet MAC for more information.

What is the maximum effective throughput of the Ethernet FMC?

See performance benchmarks for a complete answer.

Can I use the Ethernet FMC without a processor in my FPGA design?

Yes, you can. See Using the Ethernet FMC without a processor for more information.

Where can I get the datasheet for the Marvell 88E1510 Gigabit Ethernet PHY?

The full datasheet of the 88E1510 can only be obtained by signing an NDA with Marvell. If you require the datasheet, please contact Marvell or your Marvell distributor (likely to be Avnet) and have them setup an NDA for your company.

Where can I get more information on this board?

You can find more documents, Technical specifications, and example designs on the Ethernet FMC website
