Why statistics counters ifOutUcastPkts and ifOutBroadcastPkts of Triple Speed Ethernet IP MegaCore are not increased when erroneous unicast and broadcast frame are transmitted?

Description

It is due to the reason that the transmit erroneous frame status signal is used as a counting condition for ifOutUcastPkts and ifOutBroadcastPkts statistisc counters. When transmit erroneous frame status signal is high, ifOutUcastPkts and ifOutBroadcastPkts statistics counters would not count.

The following patch provides a solution to remove transmit erroneous frame status signal as a counting condition for ifOutUcastPkts and ifOutBroadcastPkts statistics counters.

Please download the appropriate Quartus® II software version 10.0SP1 patch 1.210 from the following links:

Quartus II software version 10.0SP1 patch 1.210 for Window

Quartus II software version 10.0SP1 patch 1.210 for Linux

Quartus II software version 10.0SP1 ReadMe for patch 1.210

Caution:

You must either have previously installed the Quartus II 10.0 SP1 software or must  install the Quartus II 10.0 SP1 software before installing this patch. Otherwise, the patch will not be installed correctly and the Quartus II software will not run properly.

After you install the patch please regenerate your Triple Speed Ethernet MegaCore® before you compile your design.
