Component Description
10G USXGMII Design Example Components
Intel FPGA Low Latency Ethernet 10G MAC IP core The Intel FPGA Low Latency Ethernet 10G MAC IP core with the following configuration:
  • Speed: 1G/2.5G/5G/10G (USXGMII)
  • Datapath options: TX & RX
  • Enable ECC on memory blocks: Not selected
  • Enable supplementary address: Selected
  • Enable statistics collection: Selected
  • Statistics counters: Memory-based
  • Use legacy XGMII Interface: Not selected
  • Use legacy Avalon Memory-Mapped Interface: Not selected
  • Use legacy Avalon Streaming Interface: Selected
PHY The 1G/2.5G/5G/10G Multi-rate Ethernet PHY IP with USXGMII variant.
Channel address decoder Decodes the addresses of the components in each Ethernet channel.
Multi-channel address decoder Decodes the addresses of the components used by all channels, such as the Master ToD module.
Top address decoder Decodes the addresses of the top-level components, such as the Traffic Controller.
Transceiver Reset Controller The Intel FPGA Transceiver PHY Reset Controller IP core. Resets the transceiver.
ATX PLL Generates a TX serial clock for the Intel® Arria® 10 transceiver.
fPLL Generates clocks for all design components
Traffic controller The traffic controller consists of:
  • Traffic generator: generate burst packets to the MAC for transmission.
  • Traffic monitor: receive burst packets from MAC.
JTAG to Avalon Master Bridge This IP core provides a connection between the System Console and Platform Designer (Standard) through a physical interface. The System Console initiates Avalon® Memory Mapped transactions by sending encoded streams of bytes through the bridge's physical interface.
Aquantia Ethernet PHY components
Aquantia AQR105 Ethernet PHY Ethernet PHY device on the Aquantia 28nm AQrate* ARQ105 evaluation board.
