1. Altera Low Latency Ethernet 10G MAC IP Core Migration Guidelines
Existing users of the 10GbE MAC IP core can migrate to the Low Latency Ethernet 10G MAC IP core with minimal modifications on the system. However, it is important for you to understand the differences between these two IP cores before proceeding with the migration. This document describes the differences of both the MAC IP cores and provides the migration steps from 10GbE MAC IP core to Low Latency Ethernet 10G MAC IP core.
As a summary, there are multiple major differences between 10GbE MAC IP core and Low Latency Ethernet 10G MAC IP.
