    1313Processing in the lower level MAC is divided across two resources:
    1414 * The C code in the CPU Low MicroBlaze core (wlan_mac_dcf.c)
    15  * The wlan_mac_dcf_hw core in the FPGA fabric (wlan_mac_dcf_hw.mdl)
     15 * The MAC support core in the FPGA fabric
    1616
    17 The C code interfaces with the upper layer MAC via the inter-processor mailbox and accesses the Tx/Rx PHY  via the wlan_mac_dcf_hw core.

    19 The wlan_mac_dcf_hw core connects directly to the Tx/Rx PHY control and status signals. It also implements the timers and state machines required to meet the 802.11 channel access timing requirements. The core is controlled from the lower level MAC C code.
