4.6.2. 10/100/1000 Ethernet PHY

The Intel® Stratix® 10 GX FPGA development board supports 10/100/1000 base-T Ethernet using an external Marvell 88E1111 PHY and Intel Triple-Speed Ethernet Intel® FPGA IP core MAC function. The PHY-to-MAC interface employs SGMII using the Intel® Stratix® 10 GX FPGA LVDS pins in Soft-CDR mode at 1.25 Gbps transmit and receive. In 10 Mb or 100 Mb mode, the SGMII interface still runs at 1.25 GHz but the packet data is repeated 10 or 100 times. The MAC function must be provided in the FPGA for typical networking applications.

The Marvell 88E1111 PHY uses a 2.5V and 1.0V power rails and requires a 25 MHz reference clock driven from a dedicated oscillator. The PHY interfaces to a HALO HFJ11-1G02E model RJ45 with internal magnetics that can be used for driving copper lines with Ethernet traffic.
