3. Transceiver Reset Control in Stratix V Devices

Altera’s recommended reset sequence ensures that both the physical coding sublayer (PCS) and physical medium attachment (PMA) in each transceiver channel are initialized and functioning correctly.

The Stratix V transceiver reset sequence is mandatory to initialize the physical coding sublayer (PCS) and physical medium attachment (PMA) blocks. Multiple reset options are available to reset the analog and digital portions of the transmitter and receiver.

Altera provides an embedded reset controller, but you can also provide your own user-coded reset controller.
