1.2.1. Transceiver Bank Architecture

The transceiver bank is the fundamental unit that contains all the functional blocks related to the device's high speed serial transceivers.

Each transceiver bank includes six transceiver channels in all devices except for the devices with 66 transceiver channels. Devices with 66 transceiver channels have both six channel and three channel transceiver banks. The uppermost transceiver bank on the left and the right side of these devices is a three channel transceiver bank. All other devices contain only six channel transceiver banks.

The figures below show the transceiver bank architecture with the phase locked loop (PLL) and clock generation block (CGB) resources available in each bank.
