Transmitter Link Type


This parameter is configured depending on the link characteristics. Value SR is used for link insertion loss less than or equal to 10dB and value LR is used for link insertion loss greater than 10dB. If this QSF assignment is not done, Quartus Prime assigns SR as the default value. This is used for data rate legality check during compilation.
