The LVDS I/Os in the Intel® Stratix® 10, Intel® Arria® 10, Stratix® V, Stratix® IV, Stratix® III, Arria® V, Arria® II GX (fast speed grade), Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX and LP FPGAs allow you to easily implement the Serial Gigabit Media Independent Interface (SGMII) for 10/100/1000 Mb or Gigabit Ethernet. These devices have built-in serializer/deserializer (SERDES) circuitry that supports high-speed LVDS interfaces at data rates up to 1.4 Gbps. The SERDES circuitry is configured to support source synchronous and asynchronous serial data communication for the SGMII interface at 1.25 Gbps. This SGMII solution meets the SGMII specification and saves cost and power in systems that have low to high port-count Gigabit Ethernet per device.
The integrated gigabit serial transceivers in Intel Stratix 10, Intel Arria 10, Stratix V, Stratix IV, Stratix® II GX, Arria series, Intel Cyclone 10 GX, Cyclone® V GX, Cyclone V GT, and Cyclone® IV GX also support the SGMII interface.
