This section shows how to configure and use each of the functional blocks inside the receiver (RX). Each transceiver includes an independent receiver made up of a PCS and a PMA. The following figure shows the blocks of the transceiver RX. High-speed serial data flows from traces on the board into the PMA of the transceiver RX, into the PCS, and finally into the interconnect logic.
The key elements within the transceiver RX are:
