Give Feedback Variable Gain Amplifier (VGA)

Arria® 10 channels have a variable gain amplifier to optimize the signal amplitude prior to the CDR sampling. VGA can only be operated in manual mode. VGA gain can be selected through Intel® Quartus® Prime Assignment Editor or Intel® Quartus® Prime Setting File (qsf) or the Avalon® memory-mapped interface register. You must set VGA manually for all combinations of CTLE and DFE modes.
