is phyad fixed for pca_pma core

when generate ge-pcs-pma core, we can input phy address value. just like attach shows.

I want to know if this value can not be changed in user code?


if in my design, there are 32 ge input ports, so I need instantiate 32 pcs-pma core. If I want to configure them through mdio, I need to know the core's phyad value. So if the value can not be changed by user, then does it mean I have to generate 32 pcs-pma core one by one?

Re: is phyad fixed for pca_pma core

I believe you need to regenerate the core if any parameter will change in coregen GUI including the phy address.

Thanks and Regards

Re: is phyad fixed for pca_pma core

er,,,,I used this core in v6, it can set phyad by user manaully. But for v7,why it is fixed? I believe it will be a huge work to generate so many cores.
