LogiCORE Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC v3.5 - When using RGMII and Spartan-3 family devices, I find that the example design has a missing period contraint

Description

When using RGMII and Spartan-3 family devices, I find that the example design has a missing period contraint. This issue is isolated to the Spartan-3 families (Spartan-3, Spartan-3A, Spartan-3AN, and Spartan-3ADSP), and it is isolated to RGMII only (there is no issue with GMII).

Solution

The following constraints should add to the UCF:

NET "*gtx_clk_ibufg" TNM_NET = "clk_gtx";

TIMEGRP "gtx_clk" = "clk_gtx";

TIMESPEC "TS_gtx_clk" = PERIOD "gtx_clk" 7990 ps HIGH 50 %;

This will be corrected in the next release of the core.
