5.3. PMA Direct

You can customize the transceiver channel to include only the PMA, in a PMA Direct configuration for serial data rates up to 10.3125 Gbps.

In this configuration, the serializer and deserializer interface directly to the FPGA fabric, bypassing the PCS. The serializer and deserializer support 8-, 10-, 16-, 20-, 64-, and 80-bit configurations. You must implement the PCS functions in the FPGA fabric.
