Abstract [en]

Here at ISY research is performed on network processors. In order to evaluate the processors there is a need to have full control of every aspect of the transmission. This is not the case if you use a proprietary technology. Therefore the need for a well documented gigabit Ethernet network interface has emerged.

The purpose of this thesis work has been to design and implement an open source gigabit Ethernet controller in a FPGA together with a device driver for the Linux operating system Implementation has been done in Verilog for the hardware part and the software was developed in C.

We have implemented a fully functional gigabit Ethernet interface onto a Xilinx Virtex II-1500 FPGA together with a Linux device driver. The design uses approximately 7200 LUTs and 48 block RAMs including the opencores PCI bridge.
