10 Mbps Ethernet not working on xCORE-200 eXplorerKIT

Post by tim »

Hello everyone! I am using the xCORE-200 eXplorerKIT (XK-EVK-XE216) and I have flashed the XMOS Gigabit Ethernet application (AN00199) to my board.

Ethernet communication works great at 1000 Mbps or 100 Mbps full-duplex, but 10 Mbps full-duplex does not work. When I check with Wireshark, all I see are short, malformed packets.

Has anyone successfully managed to achieve 10 Mbps Ethernet on the explorer kit? If so, what code did you use? I suspect that something may be misconfigured in the AN00199 code or its associated libraries.

Try AN00120

<edit> Sorry, should have been more explicit: I meant look at the differences between AN00120 and AN00199. The app notes cover different hardware, but it may give you info on how to configure the library to work at 10 Mbps.
