1. Introduction to the Protocol-Specific and Native Transceiver PHYs
The three types of transceiver PHY implementations are the following:
Native transceiver PHY
The protocol-specific transceiver PHYs configure the PMA and PCS to implement a specific protocol. In contrast, the native PHY provides broad access to the low-level hardware, allowing you to configure the transceiver to meet your design requirements. Examples of protocol-specific PHYs include XAUI and Interlaken.
You must also include the reconfiguration and reset controllers when you implement a transceiver PHY in your design.
