6.8.1. Avalon® Streaming Interface TX Status Signals

Table 44.   Avalon® Streaming Interface TX Status Signals
Signal Direction Width Description
avalon_st_txstatus_valid Out 1

When asserted, this signal qualifies the avalon_st_txstatus_data[] and avalon_st_txstatus_error[] signals.

avalon_st_txstatus_data[] Out 40

Contains information about the TX frame.

  • Bits 0 to 15: Payload length.
  • Bits 16 to 31: Packet length.
  • Bit 32: When set to 1, indicates a stacked VLAN frame. Ignore this bit when the MAC is configured not to detect stacked VLAN frames (tx_vlan_detection[0] = 1).
  • Bit 33: When set to 1, indicates a VLAN frame. Ignore this bit when the MAC is configured not to detect VLAN frames (tx_vlan_detection[0] = 1).
  • Bit 34: When set to 1, indicates a control frame.
  • Bit 35: When set to 1, indicates a pause frame.
  • Bit 36: When set to 1, indicates a broadcast frame.
  • Bit 37: When set to 1, indicates a multicast frame.
  • Bit 38: When set to 1, indicates a unicast frame.
  • Bit 39: When set to 1, indicates a PFC frame.

This status signal is valid only if the TX frame is valid. For example, bit 35 is not asserted if a pause frame is oversized.

avalon_st_txstatus_error[] Out 7

When set to 1, the respective bit indicates the following error type in the TX frame:

  • Bit 0: Undersized frame.
  • Bit 1: Oversized frame.
  • Bit 2: Payload length error.
  • Bit 3: Unused.
  • Bit 4: Underflow.
  • Bit 5: The avalon_st_tx_error input signal from client is asserted.
  • Bit 6: Unused.

The error status is invalid when an overflow occurs.

avalon_st_tx_pfc_status_valid Out 1

When asserted, this signal qualifies the avalon_st_tx_pfc_status_data[] signal. This signal applies only to 10G operating mode.

avalon_st_tx_pfc_status_data[] Out n

(4 - 16)

n = 2 × Number of PFC queues parameter.

When set to 1, the respective bit indicates the flow control request to the remote partner, for example:

  • Bit 0: XON request for priority queue 0
  • Bit 1: XOFF request for priority queue 0
  • Bit 2: XON request for priority queue 1
  • Bit 3: XOFF request for priority queue 1
  • Bit 4: XON request for priority queue 2
  • Bit 5: XOFF request for priority queue 2

When a pair of bits (Example: Bit 0 and Bit 1, Bit 3 and Bit 4, etc.) is set to 0, the respective bit indicates there is no flow control frame sent.

This signal applies only to the 10G operating mode.
