SGMII with Phy 88E1111 via LVDS

Hi Guys,  

I have an Altera Board with 88E1111 on it connecting to FPGA via LVDS I/Os. 

I have an SGMII core under verification. 

I did manage to run the Auto-nego successfully once.  

 

Then after that I have no idea what changes make the thing not work any more.  

 

The Phy keeps sending out: BC 42 00 00, BC 5B 00 00 ... ==> my SGMII core is therefore stuck at Ability Detect 

 

I've read the register 17 page 1 for the status, value = A010 which translates to:  

- Fiber link not up  

- Fiber energy not detected  

 

Another problem is i don't have a scope to check for the signal. :( 

 

Any advice? Any PHY register to read to find out more what's going on? Any setting to the LVDS TX at the FPGA side?  

 

Thanks a lot! 

 

I'm really afraid that the LVDS receiver at the PHY is blown up :(.
