Document Table of Contents Interlaken Frame Synchronizer

The Interlaken frame synchronizer delineates the metaframe boundaries and searches for each of the framing layer control words: Synchronization, Scrambler State, Skip, and Diagnostic. When four consecutive synchronization words have been identified, the frame synchronizer achieves the frame locked state. Subsequent metaframes are then checked for valid synchronization and scrambler state words. If four consecutive invalid synchronization words or three consecutive mismatched scrambler state words are received, the frame synchronizer loses frame lock. In addition, the frame synchronizer provides rx_enh_frame_lock (receiver metaframe lock status) to the FPGA fabric.

Note: The Interlaken frame synchronizer is available to implement the Interlaken protocol.
