Transceiver Channels

All transceiver channels feature a dedicated Physical Medium Attachment (PMA) and a hardened Physical Coding Sublayer (PCS).
  • The PMA provides primary interfacing capabilities to physical channels.
  • The PCS typically handles encoding/decoding, word alignment, and other pre-processing functions before transferring data to the FPGA core fabric.

A transceiver channel consists of a PMA and a PCS block. Most transceiver banks have 6 channels. There are some transceiver banks that contain only 4 channels.

A wide variety of bonded and non-bonded data rate configurations is possible using a highly configurable clock distribution network.
