10/100/1000Mbps Soft Logic Ethernet IP Design Assistant - Synthesis and Implementation

Description

This Answer Record identifies starting points when debugging synthesis and implementation related issues to the 10/100/1000Mbps Soft Logic Ethernet IP.This includes the Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC core, 1000BASE-X PCS/PMA or SGMII core, and Ethernet Statistics core.

NOTE: This Answer Record is part of the Ethernet IP Solution Center (Xilinx Answer 38279).The Xilinx Solution Center for Ethernet IP is available to address all questions related to Ethernet IP. Whether you are starting a new design with Ethernet IP cores or troubleshooting a problem, use the Solution Center for Ethernet IP to guide you to the right information.

Solution


The example design generated with each core in the CORE Generator software comes complete with implementation scripts and UCF constraints files. For more details on using these scripts, see the Implementing your Design section of the Users Guide. If implementation or timing errors are encountered, it is recommended to first try running the example design to see if the failures occur there. If the failures do not exist in the example design, then differences between the example design and the design in which failures are seen can be compared.
