I'm currently trying to run an Integrated Interlaken (PG169) example design. On my custom board, we have 2 FMC connectors with a cable going across the two. There are 4 quads connected to each FMC. Basically, I want to do the example design with TX from one FMC and RX to the other FMC.
Now, the proper implementation is probably just have 2 example designs running one in "TX Simple" and one in "RX Simplex" mode, however those modes are not supported. The only option left is the Duplex mode, which expects the TX to come back into the same quad RX (not possible with my SEARAY cable).
My question is that can I simply map the RX pins to another quad? (the one in our other FMC connector). If not, is there any way to run an example design on my board?

One idea I have is that I would generate two Interlaken cores (One in Simplex TX, ons in Simplex RX), and then use those to reaplce the interlaken_0.v of the example design. I'm not sure how difficult the stitching of the cores are going to be.

The example design supports simple tx and simple RX modes
Refer from page 101 of below doc

On that exact page, it says "IMPORTANT: Simplex TX mode and Simplex RX mode are not supported in this release."

Which version of core are you using?
Version 1.5 and higher do support simplex modes and this can be found in the core generation GUI options

I gave feed back on the warning in the PG and it will be removed in the PG as it is no longer valid in the latest revisions.
