Should I preserve the unused transmitter pins of an E-Tile Channel PLL on the Intel® Stratix® 10 or the Intel® Agilex™ E-Tile devices?

Environment

  • Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition
  • Stratix® 10 E-Tile Transceiver Native PHY
  • BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
    Description

    No, you do not need to preserve the unused transmitter pins of an E-Tile Channel PLL on the Intel® Stratix® 10 or the Intel® Agilex™ E-Tile devices.

    Example: If your current design implements an E-Tile Channel PLL in location 4 that clocks E-Tile channels 0-3 in External EMIB Clocking mode, you do not need to preserve the TX pins of channel 4 if that channel were later to be used as a data channel instead of a Channel PLL.
