The GTM receiver contains an 80-bit internal datapath in NRZ mode and a 160-bit internal datapath for PAM4 mode that is configurable by setting the RX_PMA_DATA_WIDTH attribute. The interface width is configurable by setting the RX_DATA_WIDTH attribute. In NRZ mode, the interface can be configured to 32, 40, 64, 80, 128, 160, and 256 bits. In PAM4 mode, the interface can be configured to 64, 80, 128, 160, 256, 320, and 512 bits.
The following table shows how the interface width for the RX datapath is selected.
|Encoding||Density||RX_PMA_DATA_WIDTH Encoding||RX_DATA_WIDTH Encoding||RX Internal Width||RX Interface Width|
When the interface width is configured to either 320 or 512 bits, this results in a half density configuration in which two channel interfaces are combined to act as one. In this mode, only a single PCS/PMA front end channel is in operation. An additional limitation is that the half density configuration must use either the channel 0/1 pair or channel 2/3 pair in the same Quad. Mixing and matching with different channels is not allowed.
|CH0 RX_USRCLK_SEL||CH1 RX_USRCLK_SEL||Fabric Interface Operating Mode|
|0||0||Both channels are in full density mode.|
|0||1||CH0 is in half density mode.|
|1||0||CH1 is in half density mode.|
