2.4.9.1. Enhanced PCS TX and RX Control Ports

This section describes the tx_control and rx_control bit encodings for different protocol configurations.

When Enable simplified data interface is ON, all of the unused ports shown in the tables below, appear as a separate port. For example: It appears as unused_tx_control/ unused_rx_control port.

Enhanced PCS TX Control Port Bit Encodings

Table 57.  Bit Encodings for Interlaken
Name Bit Functionality Description
tx_control [1:0] Synchronous header The value 2'b01 indicates a data word. The value 2'b10 indicates a control word.
[2] Inversion control A logic low indicates that the built-in disparity generator block in the Enhanced PCS maintains the Interlaken running disparity.
[7:3] Unused  
[8] Insert synchronous header error or CRC32 You can use this bit to insert synchronous header error or CRC32 errors. The functionality is similar to tx_err_ins. Refer to tx_err_ins signal description for more details.
