3.10.1. Clock Signals

Each CPRI PHY channel has its own pair of datapath clocks and each transceiver has its own reference clock.
Table 93.  CPRI PHY Clock Input Signals
Signal Name Width (Bits) I/O Direction Description
i_sl_clk_tx[n] 1 Input Single lane transmit datapath clock. These clocks drive the internal TX datapath for the CPRI PHY channel. Each CPRI PHY channel has its own clock input.

The default frequency value is 402.8320 MHz.

i_sl_clk_rx[n] 1 Input Single lane receive datapath clock. These clocks drive the internal RX datapath for the CPRI PHY channel. Each CPRI PHY channel has its own clock input.

The default frequency value is 402.8320 MHz.

i_clk_ref 5 Input Transceiver reference clock for each channel.

An input multiplexer that supports five reference clocks. The default clock is index 0. You can select only 1 clock at any one time for a given channel. You can switch the clock through the transceiver reconfiguration interface.

Use a 184.32 MHz reference clock to generate the high speed serial clock and datapath parallel clocks for CPRI line rates 10.1 and 24.3 Gbps with and without RS-FEC.

Use a 153.6 MHz transceiver reference clock for CPRI line rates 2.4/3.0/4.9/6.1/9.8 Gbps.

i_aib_clk 1 Input Clock for application interface block (AIB). This clock drives the AIB interface across all channels.

The default frequency value is 402.8320 MHz.

i_aib_x2_clk 1 Input Double frequency clock for AIB from external source. This clock also drives the AIB interface across all channels.

The default frequency value is 805.6640 MHz.

i_reconfig_clk 1 Input Reconfiguration clock.

Frequency of 100 MHz for CSR access on all the Avalon-MM interfaces.

i_sampling_clk 1 Input Sampling clock for deterministic latency logic.

The default frequency value is 250 MHz.

Table 94.  Clock Source SignalsLists the clock source ports for the CPRI core. The core provides locally generated PLL clocks and recovered clocks that can be used for the datapath.
Signal Name Width (Bits) I/O Direction Description
o_tx_clkout[n] 1 Output Parallel TX clock running at line rate/64.
o_tx_clkout2[n] 1 Output Parallel TX clock running at line rate/66.

This clock drives the active TX and RX MII interface for the CPRI PHY channel.

o_rx_clkout[n] 1 Output Parallel RX recovered clock running at line rate/64.
o_rx_clkout2[n] 1 Output Parallel RX recovered clock running at line rate/66.
Table 95.  Clock Status SignalsLists the clock status ports for the CPRI core. Use these ports to hold the circuits that use clock sources from the core in reset until the PLLs driving the clocks are locked.
Signal Name Width I/O Direction Description
o_tx_pll_locked[n] 1 Output Indicates the TX PLL driving clock signals from the core is locked.

Intel® recommends not to use the o_tx_clkout or o_tx_clkout2 clocks until the o_tx_pll_locked clock is high.

o_cdr_lock[n] 1 Output Indicates that the recovered clocks are locked to data.

Intel® recommends not to use the o_rx_clkout or o_rx_clkout2 clocks until the o_cdr_lock clock is high.
