Tri Mode Ethernet MAC v7.0 (Rev1) - Downloadable Rev1 patch update


This tactical update addresses the following issues:

1) For a VHDL project, the ipif_pkg has had its package name corrected to include the Component Name as a prefix. This will prevent package name conflicts between multiple cores in a single design; see (Xilinx Answer 57377).
2) For a Verilog project using the configuration_vector, fixed an HDL syntax error in the block level wrapper on a component instantiation and added associated missing XDC constraint syntax; see (Xilinx Answer 56625).
3) For MII, when using the AXI4-Lite management interface but without Statistics, four unnecessary lines of XDC syntax have been removed from a core constraint file. These four lines previously caused critical warnings (which could be safely ignored); see (Xilinx Answer 57440).



This Tactical Patch is compatible to Vivado 2013.2. 

It will no longer be needed as of Vivado 2013.3.
