10 Gbps Ethernet Support

The Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX enhanced PCS hard IP supports 10GBASE-R PCS compliant with IEEE 802.3 10 Gbps Ethernet (10GbE). The integrated hard IP support for 10GbE and the 10 Gbps transceivers save external PHY cost, board space, and system power.

The scalable hard IP supports multiple independent 10GbE ports while using a single PLL for all the 10GBASE-R PCS instantiations, which saves on core logic resources and clock networks. This simplifies multiport 10GbE systems compared to XAUI interfaces that require an external XAUI-to-10G PHY.
