Using of the GTP transceiver on Arty

Hi,

I am going to build a simple serial transceiver working at around 500Mbps under the Xilinx Aurora 4 lane protocol, anyone can help to confirm the Arty hardware, software and IP support this idea, seems the Artix-7 35T GTP transceiver can do this.

 

Thanks

Re: Using of the GTP transceiver on Arty

Impossible with Arty. The Arty has an XC7A35T-1CSG324I part on it. This part does not have transceivers available at the IC package pins. See http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/data_sheets/ds180_7Series_Overview.pdf Table 3: Artix-7 FPGA Device-Package Combinations and Maximum I/Os In the column for CSG324 the number of GTP is correctly shown as 0.

Re: Using of the GTP transceiver on Arty

Hi Nick,

Thanks for your reply and clarify.

As I mentioned, I want to evaluate a simplex aurora receiver at about 500Mbps, can you suggest some evaluation board on the shelf for me to start with? and after to select a cost effective FPGA model, maybe from artix-7 series to build my own board unit, since it is a personal trail at the movement, cost is the thing have to be considered...

 

Thanks & Best Regards!
