5.3. Intel® Stratix® 10 Standard PCS Architecture

The standard PCS can operate at a data rate of up to 12 Gbps. Protocols such as PCI-Express, CPRI 4.2+, GigE, IEEE 1588 are supported in Hard PCS while the other protocols can be implemented using Basic/Custom (Standard PCS) transceiver configuration rules. The standard PCS supports data rates up to 10 Gbps when using devices with transceiver speed grades 2 and 3, and 12 Gbps when using devices with transceiver speed grade 1. Refer to the Intel® Stratix® 10 Device Datasheet for details about the maximum datarate supported by each transceiver speed grade.
