1. About the CPRI Intel® FPGA IP Core

Updated for:
Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite 22.2
IP Version 19.5.0

The Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) Intel® FPGA IP core implements the CPRI Specification V7.0 (2015-10-09). CPRI is a high-speed serial interface for network radio equipment controllers (REC) to receive data from and provide data to remote radio equipment (RE).

The CPRI Intel® FPGA IP core targets high-performance, remote radio network applications. You can configure the CPRI Intel® FPGA IP core as an RE or an REC.

This user guide describes CPRI MAC layer information and does not cover information related to CPRI PHY. Refer to the About the E-Tile CPRI PHY Intel FPGA IP of the E-tile Hard IP User Guide for E-tile CPRI PHY related information. Refer to the F-tile CPRI PHY Intel® FPGA IP User Guide for F-tile CPRI PHY related information.
