In that presentation they also sent cfg0 write TLPs to the rootport, and I don’t think they emulated that, right? Inside of a PCIe switch, there will be a single upstream port and multiple downstream ports, connected together with a “bus” that gets assigned a bus number. Primary bus will be set to the next available bus number probably 1 , secondary to that plus 1, and subordinate to you don’t know how many buses are below the switch yet. It then sends a cfg1 write to the device ID that’s given by the secondary bus number. Written By eli on April 25th, Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. I think putting PCIe to practice based on what we know and see where we get stuck might be a better way to learn than to just read.

Making it easy This post was written by eli on April 25, Posted Under: Xillybus gives you the data directly through a device file interface.
I get that PCIe is a complicated subject. Jamey Hicks 1, 1 11 Configuration software accesses the function 0 configuration space and reads the header type field. If it is set, then configuration software will attempt to read from all possible functions. All that is needed, is to compile a certain kernel module against the headers of the running Linux kernel.
Written By Venice Lim on February 8th, linuz The BAR settings simply allow the device to figure out which device, function, and BAR that a read or write is targeting.
Are there any DMA Linux kernel driver example with PCIe for FPGA? – Stack Overflow

PCI Express Reference Designs and Application Notes
I’m hoping we can use this example design, since it seems like a great place to start. I would like to use a fpga board in order to send information that has been calculated to another computer with a pcie bus. It is possible to reserve addresses, bus numbers, etc.
It will probably start with a read of the vendor ID of that device, but yes.
As for the Linux side, there is no work at all. Fair enough, looks like they’re basically just going to emulate the whole host pcif in software.
Very little of that communication involves the device-driver, actually. All in all it seems like a great example design.
