- refclk_p0, refclk_n0, rx_serdes_refclk
refclk differential pair is required to
be an input to the FPGA. The example design includes a buffer to convert this
clock to a single-ended signal
refclk, which is used as the
reference clock for the GT block. Note that
refclk must be
chosen so that the
tx_clk_out meets the
requirements of IEEE 802.3, which is within 100 ppm of 312.5 MHz for 10G.
tx_clk_out is an output You must synchronize the TX path
mii bus to this clock output. All TX control and status signals are referenced
to this clock.
rx_serdes_clk is derived from the incoming data stream
within the GT block. The incoming data stream is processed by the RX core in
this clock domain.
rx_clk_out output signal is presented as a reference
for the RX control and status signals processed by the RX core. It is the same
frequency as the
dclk signal must be a convenient, stable clock. It is
used as a reference frequency for the GT helper blocks which initiate the GT
itself. In the example design, a typical value is 100 MHz, which is readily
derived from the 300 MHz clock available on the VCU107 evaluation board. Note
that the actual frequency must be known to the GT helper blocks for proper
