1. Interlaken IP Core Feature and Interface Differences

Interlaken is a high-speed serial communication protocol for chip-to-chip packet transfers at rates from 25 Gbps to 300 Gbps. Intel® FPGA's Interlaken IP solution continues to scale with today’s demand for more bandwidth and higher performance needs.
This application note summarizes the differences between Interlaken IP cores that target the Stratix® 10, Arria® 10, and Stratix® V devices.
