Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA MAC Address storage

Hi,

 

I've seen a lot of posts about mac address, but not one for a KC705 board. The board comes with a mac address label on top of (beginning with 00:0a:35:02...). However, I am trying to find out where the mac address is stored in the board? Since every time it boots up it knows its mac address, which makes me think it's stored in nonvolatile memory. I tried looking at the user guide and schematic but couldn't find anything. 

 

Thanks!

Hello @dh468,

 

MAC address for KC705 is not stored any where on board physically which is similar like  other Xilinx Evaluation boards.

Please review few of the below discussion to understand MAC address use on Xilinx evaluation boards.
