Download Rev1 Update

To install the v11.1 rev1 update, apply the following patch to the Xilinx ISE 13.2 installation:
http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/ise13_updates/ar43421_gig_eth_pcs_pma_v11_1_rev1.zip

Install the patch by extracting the contents of the ".zip" archive to the root directory of the Xilinx ISE 13.2 installation. Select the option that allows the extractor to overwrite all of the existing files and maintain the directory structure predefined in the archive.

After installing the patch, regenerate the Ethernet 1000BASE-X PCS/PMA or SGMII v11.1 LogiCORE in the CORE Generator tool. For more information on finding the Xilinx installation and using environment variables, see (Xilinx Answer 11630).

Note: You might need system administrator privileges to install the patch if you do not have write permissions to the Xilinx installation directory.
