TDA4VMXEVM: How to access "QUAD-PORT ETHERNET EXPANSION BOARD" on Linux

Part Number: TDA4VMXEVM

Hi,

We have successfully booted the Linux using the SD card and we were able to configure the single Ethernet Port available on the evaluation board (MCU GB ETHERNET).

However we want to write an application which will use the Ethernet ports available on the Ethernet Expansion Board.

What do we need to do to make those ports usable?

Can we use them on Linux or do we have to run RTOS on R5 cores to use those ports?

Best regards

  • Hello Adam,

    The QUAD-PORT ETHERNET EXPANSION BOARD is not supported in SDK as of now. We support GESI (Gateway Ethernet Expansion board) which has 5 ports.

    Can you please use that for CPSW9G tests? J721E_GESI_DB.pdf

    Hi Prasad,

    Thank you for your quick response.

    I have 2 more questions.

    1. When will QUAD-PORT ETHERNET EXPANSION BOARD be supported ?

    2. Are 2 CAN Transceivers connected to Main Domain supported? If not when will they be?
    I know that the CAN Transceivers connected to Mcu Domain are supported so we can use those for now if the others are not.

    Best regards,

    Hello Adam,

    1. There is no current plan of QSMII support as we have support for GESI board to enable CPSW9G. I will check internally if QSGMII can be enabled and get back to you.

    2. Main domain CAN transceivers are supported in the current SDK.
