Video: Enabling ethernet ports on Atmel’s SAMA5D3 (Linux)

Today, we take a closer look at how to enable ethernet ports on Atmel’s SAMA5D3 in a Linux demo environment.

As Atmel’s Sr. ARM Application Engineer Swapna Gurumani notes, simply typing “ifconfig” at the command prompt does not show the existing (ethernet) ports. Watch the video below for more information.

In addition to taking a closer look at enabling the SAMA5D3’s ethernet ports in a Linux environment, Gurumani offers up a quick talk on the subject of cross compiling for the very same ARM-based microcontroller running Atmel’s Linux-based demo package. See the video below for additional data.

    If you want to easily see which Ethernet interfaces are available on your Linux system, you can use:
    # ifconfig -a
    (from the man page: -a display all interfaces which are currently available, even if down)
