8.9. Reduced .mif Reconfiguration

Reduce reconfiguration time by reconfiguring only the affected blocks in the transceiver channels.

This reconfiguration mode affects only the modified settings of the channel to reduce reconfiguration time significantly. For example, in SATA/SAS applications, auto-rate negotiation must be completed within a short period of time to meet the protocol specification. The reduced .mif method helps to reconfigure the channel to meet these specifications. You can generate the reduced .mif files manually or by using the xcvr_diffmifgen.exe utility.
