2. Transceiver Clocking in Stratix V Devices

This chapter provides information about the Stratix® V transceiver clocking architecture. The chapter describes the clocks that are required for operation, internal clocking architecture, and clocking options when the transceiver interfaces with the FPGA fabric.


  • Bonded configuration refers to PMA bonding for Arria V devices. The split between PCS and PMA bonding is done in Arria 10 devices only.
  • Channels need to be contiguous when using PMA bonding.
