the ethernet reset

what is the block 'ETH RESET DELAY & LVL XNSLTR' for?

what will happen if we drop 'U21/Q6'?
output of U8 is 1.8V already.

Hi,

Hi,

Refer to the Marvel datasheet for the reasoning for the delay.

I found it in 4.8.1

I found it in 4.8.1
T(PU_RESET) requirement is 10ms, which is very bigger than T(SU_XTAL_IN) (10clks).

I think the delay circuit is for the T(SU_XTAL_IN), but the connected ASDMB is connected to 1.8V directly without any enable signal.

the ASDMB will use 3ms after power good.

in other words:

1. If we can ensure T(PU_RESET) match 10ms, we will reserve 7ms for T(SU_XTAL_IN) at least, which will match the 10clks requirement definitely.

2. If we can not ensure the 10ms of T(PU_RESET), there is no use for discussing the 10clks of T(SU_XTAL_IN).

So I think the delay circuit for ethernet reset is not must in microzed, isn't it?

We had previous versions of

We had previous versions of MicroZed that did not implement the RC delay on RESET, and they worked fine. However, we added it to comply with the specification in the datasheet.

what is the delay circuit for

what is the delay circuit for? 10ms after power on ? or for 10 clks of ASDMB?
if for the 10ms, which symbol can implement it? I'm a newbie, could you explain the delay circuit for the 10ms delay?
if for the 10clks, I don't think it will work.

Hi niqingliang2003,

Hi niqingliang2003,

May I ask why you are interested in this circuit? Are you working on your own customer board based off MicroZed?

I'm a SW developer, and am

I'm a SW developer, and am studying hardware design, using microzed as a reference. So I will ask some question which may be taken for granted by hw.

I want to know _WHY_ for every detail.
 
maybe here is not the best place for that, do you have other advice? VERY THANKS!
