7.3. Sharing PLLs in Devices with GIGE PHY

For Cyclone® V designs that contain multiple instances of MAC and PCS with PMA or PCS with PMA variation targeting devices with GIGE PHY, you can share the PLLs by placing the associated signals (tx_p, rx_p, and ref_clk) to the same I/O block of transceiver bank through pin assignment. Additionally, the rx_recovclkout clock must be buffered by two levels of inverter in the top level module so that it can be fitted to the general I/O pins.
