Serial Lite III is a simple, low-latency, scalable protocol for high-bandwidth serial data transfer applications. The Serial Lite III Streaming Intel® FPGA Intellectual Property (IP) core offers simple connectivity that enables rapid point-to-point data transfers across various transmission media, including printed circuit board (PCB), backplane, copper cabling, and fiber optics.
The Serial Lite III Streaming Intel FPGA IP core includes Intel’s technology-leading transceivers:
- Physical medium attachment (PMA)
- Physical coding sublayer (PCS)
- Media access control (MAC) layers
The PCS and PMA layers are hardened within the Intel® Stratix® 10, Intel® Arria® 10, Stratix® V, and Arria® V FPGAs to save customers valuable FPGA logic resources.
