IP: Low Latency Ethernet 10G MAC

When using the Low Latency Ethernet 10G MAC Intel® FPGA IP, why does changing the value of the rx_transfer_control register disable the datapath instantly and not at the packet boundary?

Description

Due to a problem with the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro software version 19.2 and earlier, the Low Latency Ethernet 10G MAC Intel® FPGA IP with 1G or 2.5G speed, the RX path is enable or disabled immediately as the change of value in rx_transfer_control register. 

The following are the affected speed parameters:


1. 1G/2.5G
2. 1G/2.5G/10G

Workaround/Fix

This problem has been fixed starting in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro software version 19.3.
