LogiCORE 10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC v4.0 - XAUI block MDIO interface does not work properly

Description

General Description

When using the 10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC v4.0 core with the XAUI block, the MDIO interface of the XAUI core does not properly wait for the "turnaround" in the MDIO frame. As a result, the MDIO interface does not work properly, which leads to incorrect frames being read back. This might also affect MDIO writes.

Solution

To resolve this issue with the 10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC v4.0 core, please install the patch that is available in the LogiCORE 10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC v4.0 Release Notes (Xilinx Answer 18572).

This issue will also be resolved in the next release of the core.
