ARM9 USB WiFi Results

The following tests were performed using a Linux PC running the "nttcp" application in daemon mode and having a MityDSP-L138 based device connect using its own nttcp application to the test server. The connection between the Wireless access point and the server was gigabit.

NTTCP Setup

For the server side we were able to use the servers package manager to setup and install NTTCP.

For the MityDSP-L138 we cross-compiled the application to work on our ARM9 CPU. It is attached to this wiki page. The application needs to be copied onto your target L138 SoM. Example test cases of using the nttcp application are shown in the sections below, see -help for details about the options used.
