Xilinx 40G/50G PCS number of instances

Jump to solution

 

I have a question regarding the line "Allows multiple instantiations up to by 2" in the description for the 40G/50G ethernet subsystem. (https://www.xilinx.com/products/intellectual-property/ef-di-50gemac.html)

 

Does this mean that there can only by two instances in a design in total? We are considering using the PCS, but would need to have more than two.

 

Also, are there any version requirements for Vivado when using the core?

Hi

 

The core generation GUI provides you option to select up to 2 cores which is mentioned as the feature.

 

You can instantiate as many core as you want as long as your selected device as the required transceivers and logic resources.

 

The core was introduced in 2016.1, so 2016.1 or any version after it is fine.

Regards,

Satish
