is it possible (or advisable) to connect two Series 7 devices (both Zynq) using the MGT Tranceivers over a larger distance (maybe 5 - 10m) by cable? The used cable and connectors could be (for example) from the RosenbergerHSD-Serie.

Dpending on rate (1 Gbs, 5 Gbs, etc) and the loss of the cable and connectors, you may go the distance.
Simulation of the link is key with SI CAD tools from Mentor, Cadence, and similar (or just use spice).

Thanks for your repelies.
Is it recommended to connect the FPGA pins to the connector directly or with a protection circuit in between?
