1.4. 10G PCS Architecture

The 10G PCS architecture offers a full duplex (transmitter and receiver) transceiver channel that supports serial data rates up to 14.1 Gbps for Stratix V GX and GS devices and up to 12.5 Gbps for Stratix V GT devices.

Several functional blocks are customized for various protocols. The different datapath configurations for these protocols are available through the different PHY IPs instantiated through the IP catalog.
