LogiCORE Ethernet Statistics v1.2 Core - User Guide specifies that GEMAC has an optional statistic block, this block is no longer available in v7.0

Description

The Ethernet Statistics User Guide (UG170 January 18, 2006) describes how to connect the 1-Gigabit Ethernet MAC Core to the Statistics Core on pages 63-64. This user guide is available to register users of the Ethernet Statistics Lounge:

There is a paragraph which states the following: 

 

The 1-Gigabit Ethernet MAC Core already contains its own optional statistics block which provides an equivalent to counters 0 through to 33 as provided in the example design for the Ethernet Statistics Core.

Solution

This is no longer the case for v7.0 of the GEMAC Core. In v7.0 the Statistics gathering option was removed. (Versions 1.0 to 6.0 of the 1-Gig MAC did have their own statistics block).
