LogiCORE OPB Ethernet MAC Lite v1.00a - Transmitter incorrectly pads frames shorter than 60 bytes

Description

General Description: 

When using the OPB Ethernet MAC Lite v1.00a, the transmitter does not insert enough padding for frames shorter than 60 bytes.

Solution

This issue will be resolved in v1.01a of the OPB Ethernet MAC Lite core which will be released in EDK 6.2i Service Pack 2. 

 

To work around this issue, as a simple software remedy, write 60 bytes in the transmit length location in the transmit memory when transmitting a packet with a length of less than 60 bytes.
