XUPV2Pro Development Board - How do I get the MAC address for this board?


How do I get the MAC address for my XUPV2Pro Development board?


Solution 1:

The XUPV2Pro Development Board has a label containing the serial number and a valid MAC address.For more information, see page 68, Xilinx University Program Virtex-II Pro Development System Hardware Reference Manual(UG069).

Solution 2:

If the xps_ll_temac IP is being used to interface with Ethernet, then search in the API of the corresponding IP being used for function "..GetMacAddress()".This function is used to retrieve the MAC address of the TEMAC channel being used in the system.

Solution 3:

The MAC Address (Silicon Serial Number) stored in DS2401 and can be retrieved by using 1-wire protocol. For more information, see Synthesizable FPGA Interface for Retrieving ROM Number from 1-Wire Devices(XAPP198).
