ALTERA FPGA PCIE LINUX DRIVER

Here are some of my assumptions: By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie Policy , Privacy Policy , and our Terms of Service. This brings me to my first question: First the rootport maps the bus structure. Switches convert type 1 to type 0 for directly connected devices, and devices that are not switches ignore type 1 configuration requests. I haven’t read the entire specification, nor do I have the Mindshare book that everyone recommends, but I think I have a reasonable grasp on the subject.

Again, it would normally do this by writing all 1s and read back the value to determine the size it needs to allocate for each address range, right?

Linux source code: drivers/pci/host/pcie-altera.c (v) – Bootlin

Very little of that communication involves the device-driver, actually. How does one know if a device has multiple functions? Inside of a PCIe switch, there will be a single upstream port and multiple downstream ports, connected together with a “bus” that gets assigned a bus number.

Maybe with configurable word widths? Written By eli on February 9th, This comment section is closed. Sign up using Email and Password. Written By Venice Lim on February 8th, After this, the rootport configures the endpoint’s BARs.

Porting to Altera is currently not planned. This has given me a better understanding of PCIe. Configuration software must make sure that the assigned BARs do not overlap.

Moreover, are you the one who coded the driver on Linux? The device number and function number can be assumed to be zero. All without reading actual specifications and educational materials? A TLP received by a PCIe-PCIe bridge for instance, a switch port will look at those settings to determine whether to route a packet from upstream to downstream or from downstream to upstream.

Note that this means you basically have to allocate addresses in one shot in depth-first order as you can’t just insert a big block somewhere after the fact without reallocating all of the subsequent addresses. Written By Smith on February 29th, Are you planning to linnux and implement a PCIe device from scratch?

The BAR settings simply allow the device to figure out which device, function, and BAR that a read or write is targeting. Your advice is very much needed. All this holds for a 1x connection as offered by Spartan-6T. It arrives as packets which you need to handle wltera by one with a state machine you develop.

That’s more or less right, except the root port will send either type 0 alterw type 1 configuration requests depending on where the target device is located within the PCIe topology. These reads will fail if the functions are not present.
