After reading several posts on this topic, I am still thoroughly confused. I am trying to make a schematic to connect a Zynq UltraScale+ EV to a VPX switch card via 1000Base-KX. I actually need 2 1000Base-KX connections to the switch card and 1 1000BaseT to PS. Questions are:
1. What IP do I need in my project, if any?
2. What special settings do I need to change for PetaLinux if any? Does auto-negotiation work?
3. Will I use the GEM interface over EMIO to the PS or some other interface and what needs to be configured in Vivado?

XAPP 1305 application note focuses on ethernet-based designs that use Zynq UltraScale+ devices, this may help you

I have thoroughly read the XApp1305 and understand most of it now. There is no mention of 1000Base-KX in any Xilinx documentation. 1000BaseX is mentioned. Do I need to disable auto-negotiation? I have settled on using the PS-PL over EMIO to the pcs_pma IP to a GTH port.

Bumping this threat. Would be great with these questions answered. XAPP1305 is not related to backplane Ethernet.
