Micro Blaze external DDR

Hi 

  Please advice if Micro Blaze programmed into Artix 7 XC7A200T is able to implement MAC and TCP IP stack without use of external DDR memory.

 

BR,

Mark.

Re: Micro Blaze external DDR

Hi Mark,

Basically it is very difficult to run the Ethernet applications without DDR. but there are some people talking about this. Please search it on google and try to implement this.

Best Regars,

Srikanth

Re: Micro Blaze external DDR

@markge,

The MAC will always be a separate IP core which will be connected to the uBlaze.

The question is the implementation of TCP/IP stack which will run on uBlaze right?

Well in that case using a large amount of BRAMs might let you use the TCP/IP stack.

But how do want to handle the incoming Ethernet packets? Where/how do you want to buffer them? Mostly the Ethernet packets are buffered using an external DDR memory.
