General Description

So-Logic's Generator Checker core can be used to generate various types of AXI4-Stream traffic.

The so_ip_eth_generator_checker core can be evaluated using Xilinx Evaluation Platforms before actual pur- chase. This is achieved by using a demonstration bit files for KC705 platform that allows the user to connect the So-Logic's complete 1G Ethernet solution system to some other Ethernet enabled device (PC or some Ethernet tester equipment) and evaluate system performance under different transfer scenarios.

For more information about the Ethernet Pause Generator core please consult the corresponding datasheet.
