When PTP is enabled, the external AIB clocking is inherently enabled. Do not enable External AIB clocking parameter in the Parameter Editor, it is unnecessary and redundant. In the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software version 21.4 or later, the Enable external AIB clocking parameter is not available when the Enable IEEE 1588 PTP parameter is turned on.

This use case covers a scenario when PTP is enabled and the PTP Accuracy Mode is set to Basic Mode.

With PTP enabled, a PTP channel and its source clock called PTP clock becomes the master channel regardless of FEC configuration.

Connect o_clk_pll_div64[number of channel] (402.83MHz) to the i_sl_clk_tx and i_sl_clk_rx of each Ethernet channel based on the following guidelines:
Table 66.  Clock Connection Guidelines for 10GE/25GE with enabled PTP and Basic PTP Accuracy Mode
Number of Channels of 10G/25G Clock Port PTP Clock Clock Connection Guideline
Single channel




Connect o_clk_pll_div64[1] to i_sl_clk_tx and i_sl_clk_rx.

2 channels




Connect o_clk_pll_div64[2] to i_sl_clk_tx[1:0] and i_sl_clk_rx[1:0].

3 channels




Connect o_clk_pll_div64[3] to i_sl_clk_tx[2:0] and i_sl_clk_rx[2:0].

4 channels




Connect o_clk_pll_div64[4] to i_sl_clk_tx[3:0] and i_sl_clk_rx[3:0].
