2.7.2. Copper Platform

In the copper platform, Intel FPGA tested the Triple-Speed Ethernet Intel® FPGA IP with an external 1000BASE-T PHY devices. The IP is connected to the external PHY device using MII, GMII, RGMII, and SGMII, in conjunction with the 1000BASE-X/SGMII PCS and PMA functions.

A 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet MAC and an internal system are implemented in the FPGA. The internal system retrieves all frames received by the MAC function and returns them to the sender by manipulating the MAC address fields, thus implementing a loopback. A direct connection to an Ethernet link is provided through a combined MII to an external PHY module. Certified 1.25 GBaud copper SFP transceivers are Finisar* FCMJ-8521-3, Methode* DM7041, and Avago Technologies* ABCU-5700RZ.
