Bank selection for eMMC in Artix-7

Hi, i want to use eMMC 5.1 IC with Artix-7 200T, which bank of FPGA is recommended. can i use Gigabit Transciever bank (i.e. bank 216) for this purpose? and can we use Gigabit transciever bank for normal GPIOs?

Hello @arslanmalik93 ,

No, you cannot use the Gbit pins for an eMMC interface or for GPIO pins.  To figure out which banks and pins to use you'll have to reference the Artix-7 data sheet DS181 and take a look at UG471 to understand more details about the I/O behaviors on 7-Series FPGAs.
