2.6.4. 1-Gigabit/10-Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) PHY IP Core

The Ethernet standard comprises many different PHY standards with variations in signal transmission medium and data rates.

The 1G/10Gbps Ethernet PHY IP core targets the reconfigurable 10-Mbps/100-Mbps/1-Gbps/10-Gbps data rates with one core dynamically. This Ethernet PHY interfaces to 1G/10GbE dual speed SFP+ pluggable modules, 10MB–10GbE 10GBASE-T, and 10MB/100MB/1000MB 1000BASE-T copper external PHY devices to drive CAT-6/7 shielded twisted pair cables, and chip-to-chip interfaces.

The 1G/10 Gbps Ethernet PHY (1G/10GbE ) IP function allows you to support the following features of Ethernet standards:
