The following describes the receive clocks in the MRMAC.
- This GT SerDes clock is used to drive data across the SerDes interface to the MRMAC.
- This is the internal high-speed clock which drives the bulk of the MRMAC receive datapath. This per-port clock is typically shared
tx_serdes_clk, but depending on the application it can be derived from the
- This is an internally-used clock derived from the primary SerDes
clocks. These clocks run at exactly 1/2 the
rx_serdes_clk[3:0]frequencies. The logic and hook-ups for this clock are typically generated by the IP Wizard.
- This is used by the flex interface. When the Flex I/F is active and
in a multi-lane mode (that is, data rate > 25G),
rx_flexif_clk[N]must operate at a frequency ≥ 1/2 of the corresponding
rx_core_clk[N]frequency. When the flex interface is in a single lane mode (25G or 10G), it must run at a frequency ≥ 1/2 of the corresponding
- This is a per-port AXI clock. In addition to clocking the RX
AXI4-Stream interface in independent clocking mode, the
rx_axi_clkclocks are also used only to clock certain statistics and flow control signals. The
rx_axi_clkclocks must operate at a frequency high enough to maintain the desired data rate across the AXI4-Stream bus, which means
rx_axi_clk[N]must be greater than or equal to 1/2 of the corresponding
rx_serdes_clk[N]in 10GE or 25GE mode) frequency.
- The minimum values for the
rx_axi_clkclocks for the various modes of operation match the table listed for the
- This clock drives the 1588 timestamping signaling. The MRMAC timestamp timers attempt to synchronize with the external time-of-day source which is running on this clock.
