The Auto-Negotiation function has an an_interrupt port. This is designed to be used with common microprocessor bus architectures (for example, the CoreConnect bus interfacing to a MicroBlaze™ processor).
The operation of this port is enabled or disabled and cleared through the AXI4-Lite Register 16, the Vendor-specific Auto-Negotiation Interrupt Control register.
- When disabled, the port is permanently tied to logic 0.
- When enabled, this port is set to logic 1 following the completion of an Auto-Negotiation cycle. It remains High until it is cleared by writing 0 to bit 16.1 (Interrupt Status bit) of Register 16: Vendor-Specific Auto-Negotiation Interrupt Control.
