3.2.4. RX Deskew
You can choose to let the IP core to align the data for each lane automatically when an alignment error occurs by setting the Enable Auto Alignment parameter in the IP parameter Editor. If you disable the automatic alignment feature, the IP core asserts the rx_error signal to indicate alignment error. You must assert the rx_link_reinit to initiate the lane alignment process when a lane alignment error occurs.
- The alignment process starts with the IDLE state. The block moves to WAIT state when all PCS lanes are ready and rx_link_reinit is deasserted.
- In WAIT state, the block checks all detected markers are asserted within the same cycle. If this condition is true, the block moves to the ALIGNED state.
- When the block is in the ALIGNED state, it indicates the lanes are aligned. In this state, the block continues to monitor lane alignment and check if all markers are present within the same cycle. If at least one marker is not present in the same cycle and the Enable Auto Alignment parameter is set, the block goes to the IDLE state to re-initialize the alignment process. If Enable Auto Alignment is not set and at least one marker is not present in the same cycle, the block goes to ERROR state and waits for the user logic to assert rx_link_reinit signal to initiate lane alignment process.
