I have an application looking at using both Ethernet ports on the AM335x. We are trying to avoid using Linux due to the software footprint required. Do we have any options available (ie. SYS/BIOS like) that support the use of both Ethernet ports and provide TCP/IP capability with a minimal memory footprint? I looked at the new release of SYS/BIOS and it doesn't appear to offer this functionality yet.
StarterWare is a no-OS platform support for ARM and DSP TI processors. So this might be sueful for you. But unfortunately we dont have dual ethernet support as of now. The EVM and beaglebone for AM335x has only one port. The new board which is next in line has 2 ports. So we are planning to add dual port support in this board. But considering the board availability and other dependencies, it will be approximately end of may when make the release with dual port ehternet support.
Following this thread as we have a similar need for dual Ethernet, preferably without a full OS.
>The EVM and beaglebone for AM335x has only one port
You have the "AM3359 Industrial Communications Engine (ICE) " board which has two Ethernet ports to develop on :-)
Personally I am still getting my head around the internal structure of the AM3359 and how the internal Ethernet switch and Ethernet interface interact.
the two phys on ICE are connected to the MII ports for PRUSS. They are not working with the EMAC switch's MII ports (different and not fully overlapping pin-mux).
As far as we are aware there is currently no board with both GBIT EMAC switch ports available on connectors.
