Hello there

I'm looking for some implementation TCP protocol in VHDL language.
Maybe some software have all ready modules for Ethernet standard?
I want to get on that level, when I can get statistic information about
some packets.

Best regards.

If I'm not mistaken, TCP is not handled by hardware, ethernet is. So
you will not find VHDL implementations in VHDL.

Check out www.opencores.org for an ethernet implementation.

You are mistaken, there are VHDL implementations but as far as I know no
free ones, see the one below from 4links in the UK,

"Other engineers like the concept because, as hardware, it can easily be
verified and should be more secure than software. "

Pish-posh!

Thanks for putting that right. I should have googled before posting:

A very recent (August 2006) implementation:

Maybe it boils down to a culture difference between sw and hw developers.
Burned boards tend to make the penalty for mistakes higher.. , and you can't
apply patches "later"..

Thank you for response

I will notify group how far I go with that project. Of course if I
even can start with this.

Best regards.

I started to work on this core as well:

"This project implements the lower layers of a standard TCP/IP stack based on a free code from University of Queensland: IP stack
My first steps to understand the project, after reading the documents are..."

One big advantage of implementing an IP, UDP or TCP stack in VHDL for implementation in an FPGA is the high throughput and low latency.

There is an example of such an IP stack here:
http://www.comblock.com/download/com5402soft.pdf

It can be implemented on a fairly low-cost FPGA (Xilinx Spartan-6) running at a slow (125 MHz) processing clock, yet achieves nearly Gbit speed. This IP core is not free but is quite low-cost for an unlimited license.
