How do I simulate the Gigabit Ethernet MAC, 10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC, or 1000BASE-X PCS/PMA cores with the "Simulation Only" evaluation flow?
The instructions for performing "Simulation Only" evaluations of the 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet MACs can be found on these pages in the IP Evaluation lounge (these pages are also accessible from the product lounges for these cores):
http://www.xilinx.com/ipcenter/ipevaluation/1ge_mac_evaluation.htm (1 Gigabit Ethernet MAC)
http://www.xilinx.com/ipcenter/ipevaluation/10ge_mac_evaluation.htm (10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC)
http://www.xilinx.com/ipcenter/ipevaluation/1gbsx_phy_evaluation.htm (Ethernet 1000BASE-X PCS/PMA)
When the core is generated, a "<user_corename>/" directory and a readme file called either "readme_<user_corename>.txt" (v3.0) or "<user_corename>_readme.txt" (v4.0) will be created. Follow the instructions in the readme file for the detailed steps required to set up and run the simulation-only evaluation.
