9.1.4. Parameters

The F-Tile Auto-Negotiation and Link Training for Ethernet Intel® FPGA IP parameter editor provides the parameters you can set to configure your IP variation.

The F-Tile Auto-Negotiation and Link Training for Ethernet Intel® FPGA IP parameter has the following tabs:
  • AN/LT Options
  • AN Channel Map
  • Target Profile Settings
Figure 64.  F-Tile Auto-Negotiation and Link Training for Ethernet Intel® FPGA IP Parameters: IP Tab
Note: The Target Profile Settings tab is available only when Enable Dynamic AN/LT option is selected in the AN/LT Options tab in the F-Tile Auto-Negotiation and Link Training for Ethernet Intel® FPGA IP GUI.
Table 71.   F-Tile Auto-Negotiation and Link Training for Ethernet Intel® FPGA IP Parameters: IP TabThis table does not provide information about invalid parameter value combinations. If you make selections that create a conflict, the parameter editor generates error messages in the System Messages pane.

PMA Type.

Selects the PMA type. Each PMA has a different data rate range and compliance specifications.

The selected mode must match with PMA mode selected in Base IP.

Ethernet Configuration.

Specifies the overall port bandwidth across the number of physical lanes used by the port.

Term XGbE-Y represents:
  • X is the overall bandwidth of the port
  • Y is the number of physical lanes used by port

The selected mode must match with Ethernet mode selected in Base IP.

KR or CR mode
  • KR mode
  • CR mode
CR mode Selects the option during auto-negotiation.
Number of ports 1-16 4 Selects number of base Ethernet IP ports connected to the IP.
FEC mode
  • None
  • IEEE 802.3 BASE-R Firecode (CL74)
  • IEEE 802.3 RS(528,514) (CL91) or

    IEEE 802.3

    RS(544,514)

    (CL134)

  • Ethernet Technology Consortium RS(272, 258)
None

Selects the FEC mode for each port.

The IP core supports the following FEC types
  • IEEE 802.3 BASE-R Firecode (CL74) is available only for 25GE-1.
  • IEEE 802.3 RS(528,514) (CL91)

  • IEEE 802.3 RS(544,514) (CL134)

  • Ethernet Technology Consortium RS(272,258) is a low-latency substitute for RS(544,514).
Link fail inhibit time 0-20000
  • 505 (for NRZ)
  • 3150 (for 50G PAM4)
  • 12350 (for 100G PAM4)

Sets the link fail inhibit timeout for auto-negotiation in milliseconds.

Default value:
  • 505 ms for NRZ modes
  • 3150 ms for 50G PAM4 modes
  • 12350 ms for 100G PAM4 modes
Status clock frequency 100-250 100

Selects the auto-negotiation and link training status clock frequency.

Must be set to the frequency of the i_clk input for the correct timer functionality.

Enable ANLT Debug Endpoint for Ethernet Toolkit
  • On
  • Off
Off Enables JTAG interface to external terminal so that Ethernet Tool Kit (ETK) can access the AN/LT configuration and status registers.
Enable Fast Simulation
  • On
  • Off
On

Enable fast simulation to skip auto-negotiation and link training functionality and FHT or FGT features. Additionally, it updates the AN/LT status registers to reflect AN/LT completion.

Note: Enable Fast Simulation is not supported when Enable Dynamic AN/LT is enabled.
Enable Dynamic AN/LT
  • On
  • Off
Off Enables the Dynamic reconfiguration feature for AN/LT IP. Make sure the correct combination of settings are used based on the base ethernet IP secondary profiles associated with the ANLT port. Selecting this parameter enables the Target Profile Settings tab.
Note: The Enable AN/LT you select depends on the base ethernet IP secondary profiles associated with the AN/LT port.

AN Channel Map

AN channel

AN channel location <n>

0-7

0

Selects the AN lane default location in each Ethernet ports. <n> is an integer from 0 to (number of lanes - 1). For example, for 100GE-4, AN channel location <n> parameter can be 0 to 3.
Note:
  • When Enable Dynamic AN/LT is set, only AN_CHAN = 0 is supported for all multi-lane designs.
  • The AN channel you select depends on the PMA physical channel connections on your board and the desired physical channel to enable AN/LT.

This option is not available for single lane (For example, 10GE-1, 25GE-1).

Target Profile Settings
Note: Make sure the correct combination of settings are used based on the base ethernet IP secondary profiles associated with the ANLT port.
