Our innovative, silicon proven solutions have been employed by over 300 customers and with more than 500 hundred licenses sold to companies like Intel, Siemens, Philips, General Electric, Sony and Toyota. Based on more than 70 different architectures, starting from serial interfaces to advanced microcontrollers and SoCs, we are designing solutions tailored to your needs. Comprehensible and clearly defined licensing methods without royalty-per-chip fees make use of our IP Cores easy and simple. IP CORE OVERVIEW The DMAC is a hardware implementation of the media access control protocol, defined by the IEEE standard. The DMAC, in cooperation with external PHY device, enables network functionality in design. It is capable of transmitting and receiving Ethernet frames, to and from the network. Half and full duplex modes are supported, as well as 10 and 100 Mbit/s speed. The core is able to work with a wide range of processors: 8, 16 and 32 bit data bus, with little or big endian byte order format. The design is technology independent and thus can be implemented in various process technologies. This core strictly conforms to the IEEE 802.3 standard. KEY FEATURES ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● Conforms to IEEE 802.3-2002 specification 8/16/32-bit CPU slave interface with little or big endianness Simple interface allows easy connection to CPU Supports 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX/FX IEEE 802.3 compliant MII PHYs Media Independent Interface (MII) for connection to external 10/100 Mbps PHY transceivers Supports full and half duplex operation at 10 or 100 Mbps CRC-32 algorithm calculates the FCS nibble at a time, automatic FCS generation and checking, able to capture frames with CRC errors if required Lite design, small gate count and fast operation Programmable or fixed MAC address Promiscuous mode support Dynamic PHY configuration by STA management interface Receive FIFO able to store many messages at a time Allows operation from a wide range of input bus clock frequencies Fully synthesizable Static synchronous design with positive edge clocking and synchronous reset No internal tri-states Scan test ready Single-Site license option – dedicated to small and middle sized companies, which run their business in one place. Multi-Site license option – dedicated to corporate customers, who operate at several locations. The licensed product can be used in selected company branches. In all cases the number of IP Core instantiations within a project and the number of manufactured chips are unlimited. The license is royalty-per-chip free. There are no restrictions regarding the time of use. There are two formats of the delivered IP Core: VHDL or Verilog RTL synthesizable source code called HDL Source code FPGA EDIF/NGO/NGD/QXP/VQM called Netlist SYMBOL rst rdcs wrcs qmt(31:0) rd wr be(3:0)2 datai(31:0)1 rdaddr(4:0) wraddr(4:0) clk qmr(31:0) rxdata(3:0) rxdv rxer rxclk crs col txclk mdi docdbusctrl dmt(31:0) waddrmt(8:0) raddrmt(8:0) enrmt enwmt datao(31:0)1 irq dmr(31:0) waddrmr(8:0) raddrmr(8:0) enrmr enwmr txdata(3:0) txen txer mdc mdo mdoe 1 – data bus can be configured as 8-, 16- or 32- bit depends on processor’s bus size 2 – byte enable (be) size is set accordingly to data bus size 3 Copyright © 1999-2016 DCD – Digital Core Design.

Receive module – is responsible for receiving frames from the Ethernet. Provides necessary functions for frame decapsulation, CRC checking, address recognizing and error detection. Synchronization logic – There are 3 clock domains in the DMAC core - this module performs synchronization between them. TX RAM / RX FIFO RAM interfaces – Interfaces to external dual port memories used by the DMAC core, to store received and transmitted frames. ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ Control and I/O logic – This module provides interface to CPU/BUS. It exchanges data and control logic with transmit and receive modules, thus controls these, to perform transmit and receive operations. STA – Station Management entity, enables communication with PHY, via simple serial management interface.
