Why does the “RX Word Aligner Pattern (Hex)” Value Appear Incorrectly for the GbE or GbE 1588 Transceiver Configuration Rules of the Intel® Stratix® 10 L- and H-Tile Device Transceiver PHY?

Description

Due to a problem in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, the “RX Word Aligner Pattern (Hex)” value contained in the “Standard PCS” tab of the GUI does not reflect the complete ordered set required for the RX Word Aligner to achieve synchronization when in GbE or GbE 1588 mode.  

Workaround/Fix

In order to ensure that the RX Word Aligner in GbE or GbE 1588 mode behaves correctly, enter the full ordered set according to the IEEE 802.3, Clause 36,40 specification. For example K28.5, D16.2.
