Note: The frame generator is used only in Interlaken configurations.

The frame generator block takes the data from the transmitter FIFO and encapsulates the payload and burst/idle control words from the FPGA fabric with the framing layer’s control words, such as the synchronization word, scrambler state word, skip word, and diagnostic word, to form a metaframe. The Interlaken PHY IP Parameter Editor allows you to set the metaframe length.
