Bit Name Description Access Reset
20:0 cycles Timer window for BER measurements

Sets the timer window for BER measurements in clock cycles.

The Ethernet Standard (IEEE 802.3) defines the required times for Hi-BER measurements for each rate. These times must be converted to clock cycles with accurate within +1% and -25% of the specified times.
Note: The clock rate you are using is different from the clock rate used to calculate the cycle count, you need to scale the cycle count.
