Design Advisory for the Virtex-6 Integrated Block for PCI Express - The receive interface signal m_axis_rx_tvalid might deassert in the middle of a packet when using the 128-bit x8 Gen 2 interface


Version Found: v2.1
Version Resolved and other Known Issues: See (Xilinx Answer 45723).

For x8 Gen 2 applications using the 128-bit interface,the User Guide has the following statement:

"Signal m_axis_rx_tvalid never deasserts mid-packet"

This is not correct.


It is possible for them_axis_rx_tvalid signal to deassert (go Low)during the middle of a packet. Users must qualify their incoming data by ensuring m_axis_rx_tvalid is asserted each cycle.

This does not apply to the 64-bit inteface (non x8 Gen 2 applications). For the 64-bit interface, m_axis_rx_tvalid does not deassert mid-packet as stated in the User Guide.
