PLB Ethernet v1_01_a - Latches are included in the design, MII Addressing Issue


Urgency: Hot

General Description:

When I configure with DMA, the plb_ethernet v1_01_a contains latches. How can I fix this problem?

Additionally, the management interface falsely reports invalid PHYs.


The plb_ipif_v2_00_a and plb_ethernet_v1_01_a Cores have been updated to resolve the latch generation and invalid PHYs issue. It should be noted that EDK 7.1 is required to utilize this update.

The following steps detail the usage of the new cores:

1. Download both cores from the Xilinx FTP Site, and save the ZIP file in the <project_directory>\pcores directory:



2. Unzip both cores into the pcores directory.

3. Close XPS.

4. Reopen XPS.

5. In XPS, select Tools -> Clean -> Netlist.

6. Select Tools -> Generate Netlist.

The new cores will no longer contain latches.
