ADVANCE INFORMATION for pre-production products; subject to change without notice.
The transport layer takes samples from the ADC output (when decimation is bypassed) or from the DDC output and maps the samples into octets inside of frames. The transport layer is common to both 8B/10B and 64B/66B encoding modes. These frames are then mapped onto the available lanes. The mapping of octets into frames and frames onto lanes is defined by the transport layer settings such as L, M, F, S, N and N'. An octet is 8 bits (before 8B/10B or 64B/66B encoding), a frame consists of F octets and the frames are mapped onto L lanes. Samples are N bits, but sent as N' bits across the link. The samples come from M converters and there are S samples per converter per frame cycle. M is sometimes artificially increased in order to obtain a more desirable mapping, for instance lower latency may be achieved with a larger M value for long frames.
There are a number of predefined transport layer modes in the ADC12DJ5200RF that are defined in Table 22. The high level configuration parameters for the transport layer in the ADC12DJ5200RF are described in Table 20. The transport layer mode is chosen by simply setting the JMODE register setting. For reference, the various configuration parameters for JESD204C are defined in Table 21.
The link layer further maps the frames into multiframes when using 8B/10B encoding or blocks, multiblocks and extended multiblocks when using 64B/66B encoding.
