Can an E-tile PAM4 transceiver PAM4 operate at a non-standard data rate like 20.48 Gbps or 10.24 Gbp

I hope to use an Intel Stratix 10 TX Transceiver Signal Integrity Development Kit (U30/U78 QSFPDD or J15/J17 MXP connector) as a PAM4 receiver, but my transmitter operates at 20.48 Gbps or 10.24 Gbps. Can an E-tile PAM4 transceiver PAM4 operate at a non-standard data rate like 20.48 Gbps or 10.24 Gbps?

Hi,


As I understand it, you have some inquiries related to the E-Tile PAM4 data rate. For your information, as I did a quick check with E-Tile Native PHY in Q19.4Pro (available in my local PC), I am able to configure your targeted data rates without any error during the rule check by Native PHY GUI.


It is recommended for you to cross with the E-Tile Native PHY in your Quartus and also run through Fitter compilation to verify.


Please let me know if there is any concern. Thank you.
