The SerialLite II MegaCore® function provides a simple and lightweight way to move data from one point to another reliably, at high speeds. It consists of a serial link of up to 16 bonded lanes, with logic to provide a number of basic and optional link support functions. The Atlantic interface is the primary access for delivering and receiving data.
The SerialLite II protocol specifies a link that is simple to build, uses as little logic as possible, and requires little work to implement. The SerialLite II MegaCore function uses all of the features available in the SerialLite II protocol, and you can parameterize it through the powerful MegaWizard Plug-In Manager interface.
A link built using the SerialLite II MegaCore function can operate from 622 Mbps to 6.375 Gbps per lane. Link reliability is enhanced by the 8B/10B encoding scheme and optional cyclical redundancy check (CRC) capabilities. Further reductions in the bit-error rate can be achieved using the optional retry-on-error feature. Data rate and consumption mismatches can be accommodated using the optional flow-control feature to ensure that no data is lost.
