AN 838: Interoperability between Intel® Arria® 10 NBASE-T Ethernet Solution and Aquantia Ethernet PHY Reference Design

Updated for:
Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite 17.1
The reference design demonstrates packets transfer between the Intel® Arria® 10 NBASE-T Ethernet solution and the Aquantia Ethernet PHY.
The Intel® Arria® 10 NBASE-T Ethernet solution implements an Intel® Arria® 10 Low Latency Ethernet 10G MAC with 10G Universal Serial Media Independent Interface (USXGMII) configuration connected to the 1G/2.5G/5G/10G Multi-rate Ethernet PHY IP core, while the Ethernet PHY is using the Aquantia AQR105 Ethernet PHY device. This reference design demonstrates packets transmission using 1, 2.5, 5, and 10 Gigabit per second (Gbps) speed rates.
