struct ARM_DRIVER_ETH_MAC

Access structure of the Ethernet MAC Driver.

The functions of the Ethernet MAC are accessed by function pointers. Refer to Common Driver Functions for overview information.

Each instance of an Ethernet MAC provides such an access struct. The instance is indicated by a postfix in the symbol name of the access struct, for example:

  • Driver_ETH_MAC0 is the name of the access struct of the first instance (no. 0).
  • Driver_ETH_MAC1 is the name of the access struct of the second instance (no. 1).

A configuration setting in the middleware allows connecting the middleware to a specific driver instance Driver_ETH_MACn. The default is 0, which connects a middleware to the first instance of a driver.

Function Documentation

ARM_DRIVER_VERSION ARM_ETH_MAC_GetVersion ( void  )

Get driver version.

Returns
ARM_DRIVER_VERSION

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_GetVersion returns version information of the driver implementation in ARM_DRIVER_VERSION

  • API version is the version of the CMSIS-Driver specification used to implement this driver.
  • Driver version is source code version of the actual driver implementation.

Example:

extern ARM_DRIVER_ETH_MAC Driver_ETH_MAC0;
void setup_ethernet (void) {
mac = &Driver_ETH_MAC0;
version = mac->GetVersion ();
if (version.api < 0x10A) { // requires at minimum API version 1.10 or higher
// error handling
return;
}
}
ARM_ETH_MAC_CAPABILITIES ARM_ETH_MAC_GetCapabilities ( void  )

Get driver capabilities.

Returns
ARM_ETH_MAC_CAPABILITIES

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_GetCapabilities retrieves information about capabilities in this driver implementation. The data fields of the struct ARM_ETH_MAC_CAPABILITIES encode various capabilities, for example if a hardware is capable to create checksums in hardware or signal events using the ARM_ETH_MAC_SignalEvent callback function.

Example:

extern ARM_DRIVER_ETH_MAC Driver_ETH_MAC0;
void read_capabilities (void) {
ARM_ETH_MAC_CAPABILITIES mac_capabilities;
mac = &Driver_ETH_MAC0;
mac_capabilities = mac->GetCapabilities ();
// interrogate capabilities
}
int32_t ARM_ETH_MAC_Initialize ( ARM_ETH_MAC_SignalEvent_t  cb_event)

Initialize Ethernet MAC Device.

Parameters
[in]cb_eventPointer to ARM_ETH_MAC_SignalEvent
Returns
Status Error Codes

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_Initialize initializes the Ethernet MAC interface. It is called when the middleware component starts operation.

The ARM_ETH_MAC_Initialize function performs the following operations:

  • Initializes the resources needed for the Ethernet MAC peripheral.
  • Registers the ARM_ETH_MAC_SignalEvent callback function.

The parameter cb_event is a pointer to the ARM_ETH_MAC_SignalEvent callback function; use a NULL pointer when no callback signals are required.

Example:

int32_t ARM_ETH_MAC_Uninitialize ( void  )

De-initialize Ethernet MAC Device.

Returns
Status Error Codes

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_Uninitialize de-initializes the resources of Ethernet MAC interface.

It is called when the middleware component stops operation and releases the software resources used by the interface.

int32_t ARM_ETH_MAC_PowerControl ( ARM_POWER_STATE  state)

Control Ethernet MAC Device Power.

Parameters
[in]statePower state
Returns
Status Error Codes

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_PowerControl allows you to configure the power modes of the Ethernet MAC interface.

The parameter state can be:

  • ARM_POWER_OFF: Ethernet MAC peripheral is turned off.
  • ARM_POWER_FULL: Ethernet MAC peripheral is turned on and fully operational.

If power state specifies an unsupported mode, the function returns ARM_DRIVER_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED as status information and the previous power state of the peripheral is unchanged. Multiple calls with the same state generate no error.

Example:

int32_t ARM_ETH_MAC_GetMacAddress ( ARM_ETH_MAC_ADDR ptr_addr)

Get Ethernet MAC Address.

Parameters
[in]ptr_addrPointer to address
Returns
Status Error Codes

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_GetMacAddress retrieves the Ethernet MAC own address from the driver.

int32_t ARM_ETH_MAC_SetMacAddress ( const ARM_ETH_MAC_ADDR ptr_addr)

Set Ethernet MAC Address.

Parameters
[in]ptr_addrPointer to address
Returns
Status Error Codes

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_SetMacAddress configures Ethernet MAC own address. The Ethernet MAC accepts packets Ethernet frames which contains a MAC destination address that matches the address specified with ptr_addr.

The Ethernet MAC receiver will accept also packets with addresses configured by ARM_ETH_MAC_SetAddressFilter function.

MAC receiver can be configured to accept also packets with broadcast address, any multicast address or even all packets regardless of address (Promiscuity Mode). This is configured by function ARM_ETH_MAC_Control with ARM_ETH_MAC_CONFIGURE as control parameter.

int32_t ARM_ETH_MAC_SetAddressFilter ( const ARM_ETH_MAC_ADDR ptr_addr,
uint32_t  num_addr 
)

Configure Address Filter.

Parameters
[in]ptr_addrPointer to addresses
[in]num_addrNumber of addresses to configure
Returns
Status Error Codes

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_SetAddressFilter configures Ethernet MAC receiver address filtering. The Ethernet MAC accepts packets Ethernet frames which contains a MAC destination address of the list supplied with ptr_addr. The parameter ptr_addr provides and array of Ethernet MAC addresses. The number of addresses is supplied by num_addr. Specifying num_adr = 0 disables address filtering previously set with this function.

The Ethernet MAC receiver will accept packets addressed to its own address and packets with addresses configured by this function.

MAC receiver can be configured to accept also packets with broadcast address, any multicast address or even all packets regardless of address (Promiscuity Mode). This is configured by function ARM_ETH_MAC_Control with ARM_ETH_MAC_CONFIGURE as control parameter.

int32_t ARM_ETH_MAC_SendFrame ( const uint8_t *  frame,
uint32_t  len,
uint32_t  flags 
)

Send Ethernet frame.

Parameters
[in]framePointer to frame buffer with data to send
[in]lenFrame buffer length in bytes
[in]flagsFrame transmit flags (see ARM_ETH_MAC_TX_FRAME_...)
Returns
Status Error Codes

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_SendFrame writes an Ethernet frame to the Ethernet MAC transmit buffer.

The Ethernet MAC transmit engine must be enabled by using the function ARM_ETH_MAC_Control (ARM_ETH_MAC_CONTROL_TX, 1) before a call to this function.

The frame data addressed by buf starts with MAC destination and ends with the last Payload data byte. The frame data is copied into the transmit buffer of the Ethernet MAC interface. The function does not wait until the transmission over the Ethernet is complete, however the memory addressed by buf is available for the next Ethernet frame after return.

The maximum value for len is implied by the size restrictions of the Ethernet frame but is not verified. Using an invalid value for len may generate unpredicted results.

The parameter flags specifies additional attributes for the function as shown in the following table. Multiple flags can be combined, for example: ARM_ETH_MAC_TX_FRAME_EVENT | ARM_ETH_MAC_TX_FRAME_TIMESTAMP.

Flag bit Description
ARM_ETH_MAC_TX_FRAME_FRAGMENT Indicates that it is a fragment of the frame. allows you to collect multiple fragments before the frame is sent.
ARM_ETH_MAC_TX_FRAME_EVENT ARM_ETH_MAC_SignalEvent with event bit ARM_ETH_MAC_EVENT_TX_FRAME set will be called when frame send is complete.
ARM_ETH_MAC_TX_FRAME_TIMESTAMP Capture the time stamp of the frame. The time stamp can be obtained using the function ARM_ETH_MAC_GetTxFrameTime.

Example:

status = mac->SendFrame (&frame->data[0], frame->length, 0);
if (status != ARM_DRIVER_OK) {
// error handling
}
int32_t ARM_ETH_MAC_ReadFrame ( uint8_t *  frame,
uint32_t  len 
)

Read data of received Ethernet frame.

Parameters
[in]framePointer to frame buffer for data to read into
[in]lenFrame buffer length in bytes
Returns
number of data bytes read or execution status
  • value >= 0: number of data bytes read
  • value < 0: error occurred, value is execution status as defined with Status Error Codes

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_ReadFrame reads an Ethernet frame from the Ethernet MAC receive buffer.

The Ethernet MAC receive engine must be enabled using the function ARM_ETH_MAC_Control (ARM_ETH_MAC_CONTROL_RX , 1) before a call to this function. The len of the Ethernet frame can be checked using the function ARM_ETH_MAC_GetRxFrameSize.

The frame data addressed by buf starts with MAC destination and ends with the last Payload data byte. The frame data is read from the receive buffer of the Ethernet MAC interface and the number of bytes written into the memory addressed by buf is returned. A negative return value indicates an error whereby the status code is defined with driver common return codes.

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_ReadFrame may be called with buf = NULL and len = 0 to discard or release an frame. This is useful when an incorrect frame has been received or no memory is available to hold the Ethernet frame.

Example:

size = mac->GetRxFrameSize ();
if ((size < 14) || (size > 1514)) { // frame excludes CRC
mac->ReadFrame (NULL, 0); // Frame error, release it
}
len = mac->ReadFrame (&frame->data[0], size);
if (len < 0) {
// error handling
}
uint32_t ARM_ETH_MAC_GetRxFrameSize ( void  )

Get size of received Ethernet frame.

Returns
number of bytes in received frame

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_GetRxFrameSize returns the size of a received Ethernet frame. This function is called before ARM_ETH_MAC_ReadFrame and supplies the value len.

The frame size includes MAC destination and ends with the last Payload data byte. Value 0 indicates that no Ethernet frame is available in the receive buffer. Values smaller than minimum size of Ethernet frame or larger than maximum size of Ethernet frame indicate an invalid frame which needs to be discarded by calling ARM_ETH_MAC_ReadFrame.

Example:

int32_t ARM_ETH_MAC_GetRxFrameTime ( ARM_ETH_MAC_TIME time)

Get time of received Ethernet frame.

Parameters
[in]timePointer to time structure for data to read into
Returns
Status Error Codes

Retrieve time stamp of a received Ethernet frame. This function must be called before the frame is read using ARM_ETH_MAC_ReadFrame.

int32_t ARM_ETH_MAC_GetTxFrameTime ( ARM_ETH_MAC_TIME time)

Get time of transmitted Ethernet frame.

Parameters
[in]timePointer to time structure for data to read into
Returns
Status Error Codes

The function returns the time stamp of a transmitted Ethernet frame.

void ARM_ETH_MAC_SignalEvent ( uint32_t  event)

Callback function that signals a Ethernet Event.

Parameters
[in]eventevent notification mask
Returns
none

The function ARM_ETH_MAC_SignalEvent is a callback function registered by the function ARM_ETH_MAC_Initialize. This function is typically called from interrupt service routines (ISR) to indicate that a frame is processed or a special event occurred.

The parameter event indicates one or more events that occurred during driver operation. Each event is encoded in a separate bit and therefore it is possible to signal multiple events within the same call.

Not every event is necessarily generated by the driver. This depends on the implemented capabilities stored in the data fields of the structure ARM_ETH_MAC_CAPABILITIES, which can be retrieved with the function ARM_ETH_MAC_GetCapabilities.

The following events can be generated:

Parameter event Bit Description
ARM_ETH_MAC_EVENT_RX_FRAME 0 Occurs after a frame is received. Frame can be read by calling ARM_ETH_MAC_ReadFrame.
ARM_ETH_MAC_EVENT_TX_FRAME 1 Occurs after call to ARM_ETH_MAC_SendFrame to indicate that the frame is transmitted.
ARM_ETH_MAC_EVENT_WAKEUP 2 Indicates that a Magic Packet is received while the driver is in Sleep mode (set by ARM_ETH_MAC_SLEEP using ARM_ETH_MAC_Control).
ARM_ETH_MAC_EVENT_TIMER_ALARM 3 Indicates that a Timer Alarm occurred that was set with ARM_ETH_MAC_TIMER_SET_ALARM using ARM_ETH_MAC_ControlTimer.
