1.1. Protocol-Specific Transceiver PHYs
Altera offers the following protocol-specific transceiver PHYS:
- 1G/10 Gbps Ethernet
- Backplane Ethernet 10GBASE-KR PHY
- PHY IP Core for PCI Express (PIPE)
These transceiver PHYs include an Avalon® Memory-Mapped (Avalon-MM) interface to access control and status registers and an Avalon Streaming (Avalon-ST) interface to connect to the MAC for data transfer.
The following figure illustrates the top level modules that comprise the protocol-specific transceiver PHY IP cores. As illustrated, the Altera Transceiver Reconfiguration Controller IP Core is instantiated separately.
