Hi @adnan86 

Xilinx provides both MAC and PHY.

If you are looking only MAC (GMII/RGMII/MII) then external on chip phy should interface to it and ethernet port is used.

Looking for both MAC and PHY (1000 base-x  GT transceiver) then SFP port is used.

Detailed information documented in PG051(MAC) and PG047(1000 base-x ).
