Cyclone V and PCIe PIPE interface

Hi, 

 

I'm trying to use the PIPE feature of a Cyclone V GX (I'm using Quartus 13.0). 

 

When I was using a Cyclone IV GX, the PIPE interface was available through the ALTGX IP Megawizard. 

This IP has presets to configure the transceiver for PIPE interface. 

 

Now, with the Cyclone V GX, I can't figure out how to configure the transceiver for PIPE interface. 

 

Any idea ? 

 

Thanks in advance. 

 

Franck.

Altera support told me Cyclone V devices do not support the PIPE PHY IP (and it is not planned). Only Arria V and Stratix V support the transceiver PIPE mode.

Is there a way in Megawizard to generate soft core that can be connected to PCIe PIPE interface? 

 

Thanks, 

Alex
