A problem can occur where the transmit side seems to lock up or stall indefinitely. The user will recognize this happening when trn_tdst_rdy_n deasserts forever.
There was a problem in the logic that tracks data credits used to work around the known restriction titled "TX Transmission Issues Due to Lack of Data Credits," which is listed in the known restrictions section of the integrated block's user guide located at:
The logic is too conservative when counting and estimating data credits, which eventually leads to the lock up condition.
A fix for this is available in the v1.9 Rev 3 patch. See (Xilinx Answer 31572) for access to the patch.
