ASIX AX88180 Gigabit Ethernet controller The driver for the ASIX AX88180 has been removed from the Linux kernel since they were not maintained by the vendor (ASIX). If you still want to see things, check out the old revisions of this page. If the drivers are ever mainlined, we will add this page back. The AX88180 is a non-PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect (bus)) Gigabit Ethernet controller for various embedded systems including consumer electronics and home network markets that require a higher bandwidth of network connectivity. The AX88180 supports 16/32-bit SRAM (synchronous random access memory (L1 memory))-like host interface and Gigabit Ethernet MAC (Media Access Control (network interface)), which is IEEE802.3 10Base-T, IEEE802.3u 100Base-T, and IEEE802.3ab 1000Base-T compatible. The AX88180 supports full-duplex or half-duplex operation at 10/100/1000Mbps speed with auto-negotiation or manual setting. The AX88180 SMDK2440 Demo Board can be purchased on the ASIX homepage.

U-Boot Support In case the AX88180 is mapped to ASYNC MEMORY BANK 3 (AMS3) use following defines to enable the AX88180 u-boot driver support. Known good timings for BANK3 @ 125MHz SCLK (System Clock): 0x8850 #define CONFIG_EBIU_AMBCTL1_VAL 0x8850xxxx Then in your board file, you need a normal board eth init function call similar to: ... #include ... int board_eth_init(bd_t *bis) { return ax88180_initialize(bis); } ...
