I’m a newbie to the MicroBlaze-uCLinux group.
The MicroBlaze Spartan3 SP05 Development Board uses the SMSC LAN91C111 which is to be retired. The MicroBlaze SP05 Development Boards will eventually be using the SMSC LAN9115-LAN9118 family of MAC/PHY chips, but not yet. Hence, MicroBlaze does not yet support this device.
SMSC provides a simple linux device driver for use with their LAN9118, but the basic OS’s MicroBlaze provides are ‘Standalone’ or ‘MicroKernel’, not Linux. Therefore, I’m looking at embedded Linux alternatives for MicroBlaze.
Does uCLinux provide a device driver for the SMSC LAN9118 MAC/PHY chip?
Are their any specifics regarding the installation of the SMSC simple linux device driver, designed for general Linux OS’s, into the uCLinux OS?
Does MicroBlaze provide an improved implementation of a Linux based device driver for the SMSC LAN9118 MAC/PHY chip for use with uCLinux?
