I am tryign to use 10G BASE-r core and optic cable to program a custom board of DACs/ADCs from the zynq(ZC-706).
The 10G-BASE-R trasnmisssion/reception has been tested and works succesfully with the custom board.
When I try to add additional logic(sequential), which is controlled by a dervied clock from the system clock, the simulation behaves perfectly as expected from the logic,but the final output after synthesis,implementation and running on hardware doesnt .
I am trying to program an AD5791 DAC (http://www.analog.com/media/en/technical-documentation/data-sheets/AD5791.pdf) , so I provide a SCLK,SYNC,SDIN exactly as per manual. The simulation ( both behavioral ,and post-impementation timing simulation) works correctly as expected. When tested separately , without the 10G-BASE core, the additional logic for the SPI signals to the DAC works correctly.
When integrated with the 10G BASE core , Without any critical warning or error in the synthesis and implementation, I observe that the sync signal frequency doubles in the final hardware realization . ie its on for 1 cycle and off for 12 cycles and has a period of 13 cycles, instead of what it was programmed for ( ON for 2 cycles, OFF for 24 cycles).
Is it possible that I can still have timing/routing issues without getting critical warnings?
Even if there are violations/issues, is it possible the signal frequency doubles and time period halves exactly ?
