In v5.4 of the Serial RapidIO Core, the settings used for the MMCM cause the VCO frequency to fall outside of the supported range which might result in excessive jitter and clocking problems.
This is fixed in v5.4 Rev1 of the core available in ISE 11.5.
To work around this issue, upgrade to v5.4 Rev1 of the core and ISE 11.5, or perform the following:
Four attributes need to be changed in the MMCM instantiation which can be found inside the example_design/<core_name>_clk.v(hd) file. The four attributes are: DIVCLK_DIVIDE, CLKFBOUT_MULT_F, CLKOUT0_DIVIDE_F, and CLKOUT1_DIVIDE. The new correct values depend on the Transfer Frequency and Reference Clock Frequency being used. The table below lists the current incorrect values in v5.4 of the core and the correct values that the attributes should be modified to (marked in red).
