This chapter describes the port merging process, where frames from multiple ports on a single accelerator are merged.
Each MAC outputs frames from a port on the accelerator. The port merger combines the frames from different ports and forwards them to the subsequent blocks.
The frames are time-stamped with the end-of-frame time when forwarded by the port merger.This is done with an internal resolution of 1 ns. If two frames have exactly the same time stamp, they are forwarded in port order (0, 1, ...)
