How to Inspect Ethernet Packet Streams with Wireshark

Many protocol stacks in SoCs are based on the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet protocol as the data link layer, while the upper layers can be standard or application specific. Therefore, verification engineers have to inspect and debug Ethernet packet streams generated or monitored by the verification environment. This article shows how to connect the Wireshark network […]
