The dynamic reconfiguration port (DRP) allows the dynamic change of attributes to the 100G Ethernet IP core. The DRP interface is a processor-friendly synchronous interface with an address bus (DRP_ADDR) and separated data buses for reading (DRP_DO) and writing (DRP_DI) configuration data to the CMAC block. An enable signal (DRP_EN), a read/write signal (DRP_WE), and a ready/valid signal (DRP_RDY) are the control signals that implement read and write operations, indicate that the operation is completed, or indicate the availability of data.

For the DRP to work, a clock must be provided to the DRP_CLK port. See the Virtex UltraScale+ Architecture Data Sheet: DC and AC Switching Characteristics Data Sheet (DS923) [Ref 4], for the maximum allowed clock frequency.

The CMAC block must be held in reset when you want to dynamically change the attributes through the DRP. That is, TX_RESET, RX_RESET, and the RX_SERDES_RESET[9:0] need to be asserted High.
