RE: RS minimum IPG


Where do you find such a definition in the standard? I don't know of
anyplace a minimum receive IPG of 5 is stated. Further, that is a parameter
that has varied based on speed so what it was at 100/1000 Mb/s does not
limit our choice at 10 Gig.

The min IPG varies from 9 bytes to 15 bytes
based on the packet size and due to clock compensation
the PHY may delete a column that will lead to min
IPG of 5 Bytes. So, thoeritically it should not be
less than 5 bytes but the spec. always defines it
to be 4 bytes as this was in the 100/1000 mbps
