4.5. RX Datapath

The MAC RX receives Ethernet frames from the XGMII and forwards the payload with relevant frame fields to the client after performing checks and filtering invalid frames. Some frame fields are optionally removed from the frame before MAC RX forwards the frame to the client.

The following figure shows the typical flow of frame through the MAC RX.
