LogiCORE IP Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC v5.1 - Base Address and High Address Restriction in the Block Level when Generating the Core with axi-lite


When generating the LogiCORE IP Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC v5.1 core with axi-lite, the axi-lite to IPIF shim in the block level has a defined base address which defaults to zero. Another parameter is also available to allow the high address to be set. There is no mechanism in the core to make sure no illegal values are set for these addresses (for instance,high address lower than base address, etc.).


This issue will be fixed in LogiCORE IP Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC v5.2. The fix for this issue for the LogiCORE IP Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC v5.1 core is provided with the Rev2 update available in (Xilinx Answer 40624). The patch in the Rev2 update generates high address internally based on the value of the base_address, thus leaving little scope for error and ensuring the high address has the correct value.
