Bug ID: FB: 362804;

Are there any problems in the VHDL variant of the 1G/2.5G/5G/10G Multi-rate Ethernet PHY IP Core for Arria V or Arria 10 devices?

Description

Yes, if you instantiate the 1G/2.5G/5G/10G Multi-rate Ethernet PHY IP Core for Arria® V or Arria 10 devices within a VHDL generate block, there is a timing constraints file (.sdc) problem. The timing constraints provided by the IP Core are invalid, and proper timing analysis will not be performed.

Workaround/Fix

To work around this problem, do not use a VHDL generate block to instantiate the IP Core.

This problem is scheduled to be fixed in a future release of the Quartus® Prime software.
