Updated for:
Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite 19.2

The Ethernet Link Inspector is an inspection tool that can continuously monitor an Ethernet link that contains an Ethernet IP, which includes Ethernet lane alignment status, clock data recover (CDR) lock, media access controller (MAC) statistics, Forward Error Correction (FEC) statistics, and others. If needed, the Ethernet Link Inspector can capture an event with the help of Signal Tap Logic Analyzer to further examine the link behavior during Auto Negotiation (AN), Link Training (LT), or any other event during the link operation. The Ethernet Link Inspector also creates a graphical user interface (GUI) to represent the link behavior.
