Download Rev1 Update


To install the v10.5 rev1 update , apply the following patch to the Xilinx ISE 12.2 installation:

http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/coregen/ar36674_gig_eth_pcs_pma_v10_5_rev1.zip

Install the patch by extracting the contents of the ".zip" archive to the root directory of the Xilinx ISE 12.2 installation. Select the option that allows the extractor to overwrite all of the existing files and maintain the directory structure predefined in the archive.

After installing the patch, regenerate the Ethernet 1000BASE-X PCS/PMA or SGMII v10.5 LogiCORE in CORE Generator. For further information on finding the Xilinx install and using environment variables, see (Xilinx Answer 11630).
