About Xilinx VC7215 Kit and using MGT

Jump to solution

Im considering to purchase the Xilinx VC7215 Board for high connectivity purpose.

 

Before I make final decision, I want to check something.

 

1)     Full support of proper operation when using full count of GTH (80 GTHs)

 

Its written that VC7215 board supports 80 GTHs.

I am wondering if  it supports proper operation when I make  80 GTHs into operation ?

(for example, any problem of power or performance degradation ? )

 

2)     Compatible operation with Ultrascale GTH or GTY ?

 

I am going to connect VC7215 boards GTH to Virtex Ultrascales GTH/GTY.

In that case,  Has no problem only if I make  Virtex Ultrascales GTH/GTY speed be as fast as VC7215(Virtex7) GTH ?

 

If not, any guidelines to be compatible between them ?

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

As such there are no known issues with the VC7215 board - http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/55180.html

 

With proper board design all the 80GTH's in parallel should be working. The evaluation kits definitely should have these board design guidelines taken care of hence should not have any specific problems. However if you face problems with getting the GTH's up for all the 80GTH's, then you can report that problem.

 

You have a warranty period during which you can run the IBERT design which makes use of all the GT's and check if it shows any problem.

 

Much better talk to an FAE for further information on this and for the purchase - http://www.xilinx.com/about/contact/authorized-distributors.html

Thanks,
