8.4. PCI Test Function¶
|Author:||Kishon Vijay Abraham I <email@example.com>|
Traditionally PCI RC has always been validated by using standard PCI cards like ethernet PCI cards or USB PCI cards or SATA PCI cards. However with the addition of EP-core in linux kernel, it is possible to configure a PCI controller that can operate in EP mode to work as a test device.
The PCI endpoint test device is a virtual device (defined in software) used to test the endpoint functionality and serve as a sample driver for other PCI endpoint devices (to use the EP framework).
The PCI endpoint test device has the following registers:
This register will be used to test BAR0. A known pattern will be written and read back from MAGIC register to verify BAR0.
This register will be used by the host driver to indicate the function that the endpoint device must perform.
|Bit 0||raise legacy IRQ|
|Bit 1||raise MSI IRQ|
|Bit 2||raise MSI-X IRQ|
|Bit 3||read command (read data from RC buffer)|
|Bit 4||write command (write data to RC buffer)|
|Bit 5||copy command (copy data from one RC buffer to another RC buffer)|
This register reflects the status of the PCI endpoint device.
|Bit 0||read success|
|Bit 1||read fail|
|Bit 2||write success|
|Bit 3||write fail|
|Bit 4||copy success|
|Bit 5||copy fail|
|Bit 6||IRQ raised|
|Bit 7||source address is invalid|
|Bit 8||destination address is invalid|
This register contains the source address (RC buffer address) for the COPY/READ command.
This register contains the destination address (RC buffer address) for the COPY/WRITE command.
This register contains the interrupt type (Legacy/MSI) triggered for the READ/WRITE/COPY and raise IRQ (Legacy/MSI) commands.
This register contains the triggered ID interrupt.
|MSI||[1 .. 32]|
|MSI-X||[1 .. 2048]|
