2.12. E-tile Hard IP for Ethernet Intel® FPGA IP v19.1

Table 14.  v19.1 April 2019
Description Impact
Added Custom PCS feature to support generic protocols other than Ethernet.

This feature support data rate ranges from 10 to 28 Gbps.

Added IEEE 1588 precision time protocol (PTP) support for 100G Ethernet variants.
No multichannel support for auto-negotiation with RS-FEC or PTP enabled in 25G variants.
Added i_clk_aib and i_clk_aib_2x clock signals to source clock from user logic. These signals are enabled through Enable external AIB clocking parameter.
Removed support for asynchronous adapter clocks feature. Selecting Enable asynchronous adapter clocks parameter does not provide any asynchronous clocks functionality in the IP.
Added simulation, compilation-only, and hardware design examples for the following variants:
  • Custom PCS with optional RS-FEC
  • 100G Ethernet with IEEE 1588 PTP
