The Register Mode bypasses the FIFO functionality to eliminate the FIFO latency uncertainty for applications with stringent latency requirements. This is accomplished by tying the read clock of the FIFO with its write clock.

In Register mode, tx_parallel_data (data), tx_control (indicates whether tx_parallel_data is a data or control word), and tx_enh_data_valid (data valid) are registered at the FIFO output.

Note: Intel recommends that you implement a soft FIFO in the FPGA fabric with a minimum of 32 words under the following conditions:
  • When the Enhanced PCS TX FIFO is set to register mode.
  • When using the recov
