The PCIe8 G3 S5-10G is a fast, versatile PCI Express (PCIe, Gen3) x8 interface with up to four 10G SFP/+ ports. It supports 1/10GbE, OC3/12/48/192 (STM1/4/16/64), or OTU1/2/2e/2f.
The ports of the PCIe8 G3 S5-10G link to the FPGA for serialization / deserialization (SERDES) and clock recovery. Each port has its own reference clock, programmable for 10–210 MHz.
The single FPGA is an Altera Stratix V GX (A3, A5, A7, or A9) with access to two independent 4 GB blocks of DRAM (DDR3), which can act as data buffers. The FPGA provides up to 16 independent DMA channels via EDT FPGA configuration files.
A time code input (1 pps or IRIG‑B) also is included, with an option for either DB9 or BNC cabling.
EDT FPGA configuration files are included to support 1GbE and 10GbE at the PHY layer; OC3/12/48/192 and OTU1/2/2e/2f (raw, framed, framed and descrambled); and demultiplexing. Custom files can be requested.
