This design includes a Signal Tap II (STP) file (top.stp) to help you self-debug if you encounter any design issues on the hardware.
The STP file contains 2 instances:
- Status – monitors the design channel's ready, reset, and PHY statuses.
- XGMII – monitors the packet condition at XGMII and Avalon-ST interfaces.
Figure 9. Status InstanceThe figure shows that the design channel is ready with resets deasserted.
Figure 10. XGMII InstanceThe figure shows the XGMII (10G) and Avalon-ST (client) interface data path signals to monitor and debug packet conditions during transmission and reception.
