AC701 - axi_ethernet_lite Peripheral Tests FAILED



I Have just bought an AC701 developement board and I want to use the Ethernet connection. I am using ISE 14.7 (the latest version).


I have created an XPS platform with a microblaze, axi_timer, axi_intc, axi_uart and axi_ethernet_lite. I have integrated this platform to an ISE project and defined the Pin constraints following the information from the User Guide and Datasheets.


Then I have exported the XPS platform for SDK and created a "Peripheral Tests" application. 


All my IP works well except the Ethernet connection, it goes in an infinite loop during the xemaclite_polled_example. The problem seems to appear when the ethernet module try to receive information.


Since the test failed I know it is not a problem with the link between my PC and my board, but it is a problem in the implementation of the module.


Does anybody tryed to use axi_ethernet_lite with the AC701 in ISE 14.7 ? There is any compatibility problem between ISE and the AC701 board ?

Re: AC701 - axi_ethernet_lite Peripheral Tests FAILED



it looks AC701 BIST does not include Ethernet as a peripheral for testing.


However Vivado Example BIST seems to do it.



If you are trying to evaluate Ethernet on AC701 i would recommend you to try the Vivado BIST
