I am having trouble sending a data stream over Ethernet on my Arria II GX board. I have been able to create a Simple Socket Server using Nios II template and an example TSE Quartus design, but have not been able to connect the 12bit signal from the HSMC connector over ethernet. My understanding is that I would need to use FIFO On-Chip Memory to capture the 12bit signal then read that value at the given memory address and send that value over the ethernet. I have looked at the UDP Offload Example, but I haven't been able to port that over to my device successfully.
Is using a FIFO memory module a decent approach or is there a better way to accomplish what I am trying to do? Any help / tips are greatly appreciated.
