HI,

 

Is there an available driver for the ethernet device: smsc 9115/9215? How about any available HW? What is the status of these if any (how tested/stable are they)?

 

Thanks,

 

Hans

Message: 50321    this is a Blackfin forum ... we dont produce smsc hardware.  you should contact smsc about it.

 

the general smsc drivers in the kernel should probably "just work", but we've only tested whatever happens to be on stamp or ezkit boards

Hi Mike

 

Being an employee of ADI and having spent some time on this forum, I do understand that this is a blackfin related forum. Also I understand that your group provides/tests uClinux drivers for peripherals to the blackfin processors, such as an ethernet device.

 

It looks like there is a bf548 EZkit which is having the smsc9218 chip on it. Has your group tested the uClinux driver to this deivce? That is what I am asking about.

Yes - the driver works with the BF548-EZKit - the same driver is supposed to work with the entire 921X and 911X family.

Message: 50334    we would make network addon cards only if they were needed ... since most kits now have on-board ethernet, and the ones that dont already have a card made by ADI, there's no need for us to make the addon cards.

 

you can find a list of cards we're involved with here:

Message: 50390    OK, we should be able to use the 548 ezkit. In which release can we find the driver?

Message: 50391    the 2008R1 is the first release to support BF54x/BF52x ... but you can always look in our svn tree

Hans,

 

There are drivers for all peripherals on the BF548-EZkit except for the rotary encoder. ATAPI, USB (Host/Device), AD7877 Touchscreen, AD1980 Sound, SMSC9218 Ethernet, SDH, TFT Display, UART, SPORT, PPI, Keypad, etc. have passed simple tests (not all test cases are yet in place) most of them will be stable or mature when we release 2008R1 soon (likely in a few days).

CAN has not yet tested at all, but is also likely to work.

 

Either checkout the 2008R1 svn release branch or pull from svn trunk.

 

SMSC9218 Ethernet shouldn't cause any problems.

 

-Michael
