Marvell ARMADA 8040 Networking

Overview

The A8040 offers different interfaces: One 1Gbit Ethernet interface, one 2.5 Gbit SFP Slot, and two 3310 Phys, which offers either usings a 10Gbit Ethernet via copper or SFP.

Each 3310 Phy need its own heatsink!

Network

  • 10/100/1000 Mbit: RJ45 Ethernet: CP1 SRD0 | 1512 PHY

  • 2.5Gbit SFP+: SGMII SFP: CP1 SRD5

  • 10G Ethernet: CP1 SRD4 | 3310 PHY (supporting either copper or SFP+)

  • 10G Ethernet: CP0 SRD4 | 3310 PHY (supporting either copper or SFP+)

Marvell ARMADA 8040 SPI

Overview

The A8040 got one SPI flash onboard, which can be used to flash u-boot on.
It is a Winbond 32mbit SPI Chip W25Q32FVZPIG

Please have a look at the U-Boot section how to write data to the spi: Flashing Instructions

Dipswitch

Marvell ARMADA 8040 Dipswitch
Overview

Boot and frequency DIP switches (SW1+SW2)

The board incorporates two blocks of DIP switches, SW1 and SW2 where each has 5 positions.

SW2[1..5] and SW1[1] are for boot selection and SW1[2..5] is for frequency selection.

Boot selection

Following is configuration of SW2[1..5] and SW1[1] (6 positions from left to right) –

Flash MACCHIATObin DoubleShot 10G Ethernet PHYs

Follow these instructions to flash the firmware on both 10G PHYs of the MACCHIATObin DoubleShot. This is a one time operation.

  1. Download this archive: mcbin-phy-firmware-flash.tar.gz.

  2. The file sdcard-8040-dec-11-only-for-phy-firmware.img is an SD card image with a special version of U-Boot that can program the 10G PHY.

  3. The two other files are the PHY firmware files. Copy these files to a USB storage device.

  4. At U-Boot prompt run the following commands:

    1 2 3 4 fatload usb 0:1 0x06000000 x3310fw_0_2_1_0_8125.hdr fatload usb 0:1 0x05000000 x3240flashdlslave_0_4_1_0_7847.bin phy_fw_down 0x06000000 164868 0x05000000 9948 8 phy_fw_down 0x06000000 164868 0x05000000 9948 0
