Overview

ION 64b66b is an IP for high-speed serial interface targeting applications with inter-chip and inter-board connections. Lightweight link layer protocol provides one-to-one data movement via one or more high-speed serial lanes.

Features

  • 13.5-Gbps maximum transmission rate per lane (however, depends on the FPGA used)
  • Supports up to 16 lanes
  • Supports CRC function
  • Supports Scrambler function

Device Utilization and Performance

In case of 2lane full-duplex, CRC enabled, and Arria 10 GX 10Gbps configulation : 5.1kALM, 5.3kRegs
