I have a KC705 board and I am trying to figure out how to use the SMA I/O. I am inputting a single-ended 2.5V CMOS square wave (2.5V high, 0V low) from a function generator to pin J13 and tried to output the same square wave to pin J14 but I am not getting anything (just 0V). (J13 and J14 are GPIO SMA connectors with LVCMOS25 standard)
I tried replacing the SMA input J13 with a pushbutton and I still could not see an output (output showed low when button was pressed and low when button was not pressed) but I can see the output properly through UART/COM port on my PC (displays high when button is pressed and low when button is not pressed) so am I missing something for SMA?

I tried both running the tcl script and generating the example design myself, following the steps in the slides, but the bitstream generation failed for both. The errors are in pin planning - unspecified I/O standards and unconstrained logical ports for 38 out of 38 ports. What am I supposed to assign each of the ports to? Also do I have to purchase the SFP Loopback Adapter to test this? It did not come with my evaluation kit.

You can reference the xdc to see how the board was defined for the 38 pins that you are utilizing. For example:
set_property PACKAGE_PIN Y23 [get_ports USER_SMA_GPIO_P] set_property IOSTANDARD LVCMOS25 [get_ports USER_SMA_GPIO_P]
