Resolved Issues 

 

(Xilinx Answer 32539) XAUI v8.1 and earlier - Data errors seen when using Virtex-5 GTX RocketIO during asynchronous operation  

 

(Xilinx Answer 32541) XAUI v8.1 - The core GUI incorrectly allows MGT state machines to be selected for Virtex-4  

 

Known Issues 

 

- Virtex-6 solutions are pending hardware validation. 

 

-Software Support for the Virtex-6 Lower Power parts was added in this release but the XAUI Core does not yet support these device and can not be generated from Core Generator targeting Virtex-6 Lower Power. Pending further testing support for Virtex-6 Lower Power parts is planned for 11.3. In order to work around this issue, you can set your project to target an equivalent Virtex-6 LXT device which will allow you to generate the IP. 

 

(Xilinx Answer 24678) Virtex-4 GT11 SmartModel Simulation - TX serial output skewed in SimPrims Timing simulation  

 

(Xilinx Answer 33135) LogiCORE XAUI v8.2 - Incorrect Virtex-6 GTX attribute when not using the IEEE state machines
