[FAQ] AM6548: Does AM65 support Ethernet Switch on Linux/RTOS

Part Number: AM6548

Does AM65 support Ethernet Switch on Linux or RTOS platform ?

  • Currently AM65x does not support Ethernet Switch on either Linux or RTOS but there is support provided for Dual MAC out of the box.

    For Linux support, see this documentation

    For RTOS support, please check the ICSS EMAC loopback application inside pdk/packages/ti/drv/emac/test. It can be built through the following steps

    1. go to pdk/packages --> source

    2. go to pdk/packages/ti/drv/emac --> make

    3. Binary will be in packages/ti/binary/Emac_Icssg_TestApp

    RGMII/MII support

    • IDK user guide is available here.
    • IDK supports RGMII out of the box but MII support can be added via modifications to the IDK as documented in Section 7 of the IDK User Guide
    • RTOS driver supports EMAC out of the box (with minor changes). See this thread for reference
    • Linux only supports RGMII out of the box

    NOTE : There are plans to add support for 100Mbps Ethernet/IP on ICSSG on RTOS by Nov End 2021. Ethernet/IP can be used as a switch proxy since it supports most switch functionalities. For details, refer to the User Guide and Datasheet
