Embedded Tri-mode Ethernet MAC Wrapper v3.1 - Synplify removes IDELAYCTRL from RGMII configurations

Description

General Description: 

When using the Embedded Tri-mode Ethernet MAC Wrapper v3.1 with the RGMII interfaces in Synplify 8.0 or 8.1, Synplify removes the IDELAYCTRL module.

Solution

This is a Synplify bug in which it removes the IDELAYCTRL whenever the RDY output is left open. 

 

A patch is available which works around this Synplify issue by adding the "syn_noprune" synthesis attribute to the IDELAYCTRL block. To obtain this fix, install the patch that is available in the Embedded Tri-mode Ethernet MAC Wrapper v3.1 Core Release Notes and Known Issues Answer Record (Xilinx Answer 21903) and then regenerate the wrappers.
