7.3. F-Tile Clocking and Datapath Tool

The F-Tile Clocking and Datapath Tool helps you to configure the F-Tile PMA/FEC Direct PHY Intel® FPGA IP and displays the following:
  • TX and RX datapath of one configuration at a time.
  • Selection of parameters that can affect clocking.
  • Single vs multiple streams based on chosen configuration.
  • Parameters such as FEC type, clocking scheme, PMA width, and core and interface FIFO.
The excel based F-Tile Clocking and Datapath Tool is available for download at F-Tile Clocking and Datapath Tool. A screenshot of the tool is shown in the following figure.
