LogiCORE Fibre Channel Core v2.0 - Can the core speed negotiate between 1 Gb/s, 2 Gb/s, and 4 Gb/s operation?


General Description: 

Is auto-negotiation of link speed supported in the Fibre Channel Core v2.0? In other words, can the core speed negotiate between 1Gb/s, 2Gb/s, and 4Gb/s operation automatically?


The Fibre Channel v2.0 Core can support either 1 Gb/2 Gb or 2 Gb/4 Gb speed negotiation using the optional hardware-based speed negotiation block. Optionally, you can add software support for speed negotiation. 


1 Gb/2 Gb and 4 Gb speed negotiation is currently not supported in the Fibre Channel v2.0 Core.
