3.9.1. PMA Bonding

PMA bonding reduces skew between PMA channels. In PMA bonding, only the PMA portion of the transceiver datapath is skew compensated. The PCS is not skew compensated.

In Intel® Stratix® 10 devices, there is a single PMA bonding scheme:

  • x6/x24 bonding

The channels in the bonded group do not have to be placed contiguously.
