As I understand it, you are inquiring about the support of the CPRI Intel FPGA IP Core in the C10GX devices. As per the user guide, the supported devices currently are S10, A10 and V series devices only. I am currently consulting Engineering if there is any plan to support C10GX devices in the future. I will keep you posted on the progress by end of the week or as soon as there is any valid response from them. Please ping me if you do not hear back from me. Thank you.
The Cyclone 10 GX transceiver PHY user guide describes CPRI support in section 2.8 on page 149.
It seems like an oversight that the Cyclone 10 GX was not added to the device family support for the CPRI IP.
Can you confirm when this device support will be added?
For your information, I have received response from Engineering on our consultation. According to Engineering, there is no plan to support the CPRI IP for C10GX devices. Sorry for the inconvenience.
As for the XCVR PHY user guide, as I understand it, it is trying to mention that there is no issue supporting CPRI PHY using the transceiver Native PHY. User will need to code the other modules ie MAC and other supporting logic. The CPRI IP (with MAC + PHY) is different IP from the Native PHY. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Please let me know if there is any concern. Thank you.
I believe the initial inquiry has been addressed. This thread will be transitioned to community support. If you have a new question, feel free to open a new thread to get the support from Intel experts. Otherwise, the community users will continue to help you on this thread. Thank you.
