Document Table of Contents Bonded GX Channels

Bonding across multiple transceiver tiles is not supported. All bonded channels must be placed within the same transceiver tile. A maximum of 24 channels can be bonded.

When PMA bonding is enabled, the channels do not need to be placed contiguously in the transceiver tile. When both PMA and PCS bonding are enabled, the channels must be placed contiguously in transceiver tile and in ascending order.

Figure 19. x4 ConfigurationThe figure below shows a way of placing 4 bonded channels. In this case, the logical PCS Master Channel number 2 must be specified as Physical channel 4 of bank 0.
