We are going to start a project in which we will need to use the hardware MAC Ethernet module in a Virtex 5 for high speed transferrs (around 400KB/s) through 1000BT. I'm looking for experience feedbacks : Anyone who has used tihs module without a third-party TCP/IP stack (as we have in mind to generate static size UDP frames directly from the logic due to the high throughput we need, may be with the help of a microblaze for configuration of addresses etc) ? Difficulties ? Quality of the documentation ? Virtex 4 vs 5 ? Reference designs or good sources of information ?
Many thanks, Yours, Robert
