2.8.2. Supported Features for CPRI
CPRI (Auto) and CPRI (Manual) transceiver configuration rules are both available for CPRI designs. Both modes use the same functional blocks, but the configuration mode of the word aligner is different between the Auto and Manual modes. In CPRI (Auto) mode, the word aligner works in deterministic mode. In CPRI (Manual) mode, the word aligner works in manual mode.
To avoid transmission interference in time division multiplexed systems, every radio in a cell network requires accurate delay estimates with minimal delay uncertainty. Lower delay uncertainty is always desired for increased spectrum efficiency and bandwidth. The Arria 10 devices are designed with features to minimize the delay uncertainty for both RECs and REs.
