Are there any available PmodNIC100 drivers for Basys3 to connect it via 
ethernet cable to a computer.

I am a beginner and do not have the knowhow to write this interface by 
myself in a reasonable time for my project.

I program in ISE Design Suite 14.7 enviroment and use VHDL.

I am kindly open to any recommendations.

The Basys3 contais an FPGA. An FPGA is not automatically a 
So what you called 'driver' is in FPGA world called 'IP core'.

An ethernet IP core is not a project for a bloody beginner. What 
experience did you have with designing for FPGA?

I know what FPGA is and have had few courses where I have programmed 
NEXSYS 1, BASYS 1 and BASYS 2. I have not used any addons for these 

My current project is to send data form computer to a BASYS 3 board, 
encrypt this data with AES and then send the ecrypted data back to 

I am looking for a simple or the simplest way to simulate ethernet 
conection between my computer and FPGA device. I ask about PmodNIC100 
because this is a device available for me.
