PCS Features

This table summarizes the Intel® Arria® 10 transceiver PCS features. You can use the transceiver PCS to support a wide range of protocols ranging from 1 Gbps to 25.8 Gbps.

PCS Description
Standard PCS
  • Operates at a data rate up to 12 Gbps
  • Supports protocols such as PCI-Express, CPRI 4.2+, GigE, IEEE 1588 in Hard PCS
  • Implements other protocols using Basic/Custom (Standard PCS) transceiver configuration rules.
Enhanced PCS
  • Performs functions common to most serial data industry standards, such as word alignment, encoding/decoding, and framing, before data is sent or received off-chip through the PMA
  • Handles data transfer to and from the FPGA fabric
  • Handles data transfer internally to and from the PMA
  • Provides frequency compensation
  • Performs channel bonding for multi-channel low skew applications
  • Supports the seamless switching of Data and Clock between the Gen1, Gen2, and Gen3 data rates
  • Provides support for PIPE 3.0 features
  • Supports the PIPE interface with the Hard IP enabled, as well as with the Hard IP bypassed
