1.2.2.1. The GX Transceiver Channel

Figure 16. GX Transceiver Channel in Full Duplex Mode.

Arria® 10 GX transceiver channels have three types of PCS blocks that together support continuous data rates between 1.0 Gbps and 17.4 Gbps.

Table 6.  PCS Types Supported by GX Transceiver Channels
PCS Type Data Rate
Standard PCS 1.0 Gbps to 10.81344 Gbps
Enhanced PCS 1.0 Gbps 6 to 17.4 Gbps
PCIe* Gen3 PCS 8 Gbps
Note:
  1. The GX channel can also operate in PCS Direct configuration for data rates from 1.0 Gbps to 17.4 Gbps. To operate GX transceiver channels in PCS Direct designated data rates, refer to the Intel® Arria® 10 Device Datasheet for more details on power supply, speed grade, and transceiver configurations requirement.
  2. The minimum operational data rate is 1.0 Gbps for both the transmitter and receiver. For transmitter data rates less than 1.0 Gbps, oversampling must be applied at the transmitter. For receiver data rates less than 1.0 Gbps, oversampling must be applied at the receiver.
  3. To operate GX transceiver channels with the PCS at designated data rates, refer to the Intel® Arria® 10 Device Datasheet for more details on power supply, speed grade, and transceiver configurations requirement.
6 Applies when operating in reduced power modes. For standard power modes, the Enhanced PCS minimum data rate is 1600 Mbps.
