In the Altera Triple Speed Ethernet (TSE) MegaCore function, how can the PLL Merging for Multiple Port PCS+PMA Configuration in TSE?

Description

The TSE megafunction does not support multi port for 1000BASE-X/SGMII PCS only option with LVDS I/O.

You need to ensure that all the LVDS reference clocks are sharing the same clock and all LVDS I/O are located on the same side of the FPGA (left or right).

You don't need to merge the PLL manually. Quartus® II software will automatically merge all the PLL after the Fitter stage.
