5.2. Cyclone® 10 GX Enhanced PCS Architecture

You can use the Enhanced PCS to implement multiple protocols that operate at around 10 Gbps or higher line rates.

The Enhanced PCS provides the following functions:

  • Performs functions common to most serial data industry standards, such as word alignment, block synchronization, encoding/decoding, and framing, before data is sent or received off-chip through the PMA
  • Handles data transfer to and from the FPGA fabric
  • Internally handles data transfer to and from the PMA
  • Provides frequency compensation
  • Performs channel bonding for multi-channel low skew applications
