7.5. Avalon® Memory-Mapped Management Interface

You access MAC control and status registers using an Avalon® memory-mapped management interface. The interface responds regardless of the link status. It also responds when the IP core is in a reset state driven by any reset signal or soft reset other than the csr_rst_n signal. Asserting the csr_rst_n signal resets MAC control, status, and statistics registers; while this reset is in process, the Avalon® memory-mapped management interface does not respond.
Note: This interface cannot handle multiple pending read transfers. Despite the presence of the status_readdata_valid signal, this Avalon® memory-mapped interface is non-pipelined with variable latency.

Note: All status_* signals are synchronous to clk_status signal.




clk_status Input The clock that drives the control and status registers. The frequency of this clock is 100 MHz.
reset_status Input Resets the Avalon® memory-mapped management interface.
status_addr[15:0] Input

Drives the Avalon® memory-mapped register address.

status_read Input

When asserted, specifies a read request.

status_write Input When asserted, specifies a write request.
status_readdata[31:0] Output Drives read data. Valid when status_readdata_valid is asserted.
status_readdata_valid Output When asserted, indicates that status_read_data[31:0] is valid.
status_writedata[31:0] Input Drives the write data. The packet can end at any byte position. The empty bytes are the low-order bytes.
status_waitrequest Output Indicates that the control and status interface is not ready to complete the transaction. status_waitrequest is only used for read transactions.
