Ethernet jumbo frames in SmartDSP OS apps

Posted: 18 Aug 2010 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:Ethernet jumbo frames? SmartDSP OS? Ethernet application?

The maximum Ethernet frame size is defined as 1,518bytes in the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standard. A specially defined Ethernet jumbo frame can be used to increase the Ethernet throughput and to reduce the CPU/DSP core load. Note that Ethernet jumbo frames are not defined in the IEEE 802.3 standard, and only can be used in systems where both the sender and receiver support it. The definition of the Ethernet jumbo frame size is vendor-dependent.

This application note describes how to enable Ethernet jumbo frames in a SmartDSP OS application. It reviews the modifications necessary to enable the jumbo frames and provides a sample application running on the MSC8156ADS.
