2.5.3. How to Implement Interlaken in Arria 10 Transceivers
You should be familiar with the Interlaken protocol, Enhanced PCS and PMA architecture, PLL architecture, and the reset controller before implementing the Interlaken protocol PHY layer.
Arria 10 devices provide three preset variations for Interlaken in the IP Parameter Editor:
- Interlaken 10x12.5 Gbps
- Interlaken 1x6.25 Gbps
- Interlaken 6x10.3 Gbps
- Instantiate the Arria 10 Transceiver Native PHY IP from the IP Catalog (Installed IP > Library > Interface Protocols > Transceiver PHY > Arria 10 Transceiver Native PHY).
Refer to Select and Instantiate the PHY IP Core for more details.
- Select Interlaken from the Transceiver configuration rules list located under Datapath Options, depending on which protocol you are implementing.
