Document Table of Contents Pseudo-Random Pattern Generator

The pseudo-random pattern (PRP) generator is specifically designed for the 10GBASE-R and 1588 protocols. The PRP generator block operates in conjunction with the scrambler to generate pseudo-random patterns for the TX and RX tests in the 10G Ethernet mode. You can use the Cyclone® 10 GX Pseudo Random Pattern (PRP) generator in the scrambler to generate random data pattern and seed that the scrambler can use. The PRP mode is a test mode of the scrambler. Two seeds are available to seed the scrambler: all 0s or two local fault-ordered sets. The seed is used in the scrambler to produce the pattern. PRP is only available when the scrambler is enabled.
