In the Vivado 2013.3 tool, IPI will allow automated connection to a board interface if it finds an interface in the IP with the same name.
If the Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC IP is using an MDIO interface, run_connection_automation will show up for boards that have an MDIO interface.
Currently, the Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC IP only supports automatic connection for the AC701 and KC705 boards.
If automatic connection is run on an unsupported board such as the VC707 board, IPI will flag an error.
The following are example warnings:
For unsupported boards, instead of using the automated connection, select the custom option and enter the pin information.
