18.104.22.168. Master Channel in Bonded Configurations
For PCIe*, both the PMA and PCS must be bonded. There is no need to specify the PMA Master Channel because of the separate Master CGB in the hardware. However, you must specify the PCS Master Channel through the Native PHY. You can choose any one of the data channels (part of the bonded group) as the logical PCS Master Channel.

The following figures show the default configurations:
As indicated in the figures above, the fitter picks either physical CH1 or CH4 as the PCS master in bonded configurations for PIPE.
The figure below shows the placement of a x4 PIPE configuration with the Logical PCS Master Channel that is adjacent to a Hard IP.
