4.3. PCS, OTN, and FlexE Modes

Each F-Tile Ethernet Intel® FPGA Hard IP instance contains a full featured multi-lane PCS layer, which offers a number of interfacing options from the FPGA fabric.
The IP offers the following PCS options:
  • PCS - This mode uses the MII interface to transmit and receive Ethernet packets for data rate of 10GE/25GE/50GE/100GE/200GE/400GE.
  • OTN and FlexE - This mode uses the PCS66 interface to read and write 66 bit blocks data, from and to the PMA block.
