This allows not to lose too much memory or not to disable cache memory for a page which contains other data than buffer, which could decrease performance. Application Programming Interface 4. Current applicable release is 1. Additional include files 4. First draft of this document Planned releases: Then the driver connects an interrupt handler to the interrupt line driven by the Ethernet controller the only interrupt which will be treated is the receive interrupt and launches 2 threads: Then the driver waits for incoming frame to give to the protocol stack or outcoming frame to send on the physical link.

We choose to use only one buffer of bytes per descriptor.
On Intel PC target, we were faced with a problem of memory cache management. Many Ethernet adapter cards use the Tulip chip. Early versions used National transcievers, but later versions are depopulated ZX boards.
First version of this document. Currently, this tool does not support the DEC board.
Digital Dec 10 100 Fast Ethernet PCI Network Cards 21143 PC 21140 AE PD
To achieve it, we have chosen a Motorola MCP board. Finally, we will see what will be done for ChorusOs and Netboot environment.
Adding a Default Route 4. The descriptor structure is defined in vec Buffer Descriptor Figure. Write the Driver Receive Task 3. Network device configuration 4.
(Datasheet) pdf – DEC Chip (1-page)
Write the Driver Initialization Function. Then the driver connects an interrupt handler to the interrupt line driven by the Ethernet controller the only interrupt which will be treated is the receive interrupt and launches 2 threads: But concerning the port of the DEC driver into Netboot, we are faced with a problem: Once the attach function executed, the driver initializes the DEC chip.
This thread is also event driven. Write the Driver Statistic-Printing Function 4. By reading or writing these registers, a driver can obtain information about the type of the board, the interrupt it uses, the mapping of the chip specific registers, … On Intel target, the chip specific registers can be accessed via 2 methods: We have chosen to implement the PCI address access to obtain compatible source code to the port the driver on a PowerPC target.
Network Task Structure and Data Flow 3. Netboot DEC driver 7.
Download Intel Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter (Generic)
Additional include files 4. We have used this paging mechanism, with 4Kb page. List of Ethernet cards using the DEC chip 8. Accton EN All three media types supported.
Understand the network scheduling conventions 3.
On Intel, the memory region cache management is available only if the paging unit is enabled. Write the Driver Transmit Task 3. Write the Driver Start Function. Each valid incoming ethernet frame is sent to the protocol stack and the buffer descriptor is given back to the DEC board the host processor reset bit OWN, which means descriptor belongs to Increasing the size of the heap 4.
Including the required managers 4. Learn about the network device 3. To reference these buffers to the DEC chip we use a buffer descriptors ring.
