This application note describes a reference system illustrating how to build an embedded PowerPC system using the Virtex-4 PLB tri-mode Ethernet media access controller (PLB-TEMAC). This reference system has the PLB_TEMAC configured to use Scatter/Gather DMA and support a gigabit media independent interface (GMII) PHY. Moreover, it enables such performance enhancing features as hardware data realignment and checksum offloading. This reference system includes two software test suites that provide examples of how to measure performance and verify functionality of the PLB-TEMAC IP core.
