Driving the HP Bank GPIO with 1.8V signal before the VCCO is powered upto 1.8V: Kintex7 160T FPGA

Jump to solution

Hi,

The answer recorded 'AR# 45985' is all about driving FPGA with the 3.3V logic signal before VCCO is powered.
I have gone through it and understood the same.

But I am still confused about what happens when 1.8V logic signal drives FPGA HP I/O before any of the FPGA Power rails(VCCINT, VCCAUX/AUXIO, VCCO_HP, VCCO_HR) are powered.

Since here there is no 2.625V violation of TVCCO2VCCAUX, my conclusions are as follows.

1. FPGA HP I/Os will not get damaged if clamping diode current is maintained less than 10mA
2. There is no need to use any resistor at VCCO_HP pins to limit the voltage less than 2.625V

 

Kindly verify the correctness of above-listed conclusion. So I can proceed without incorporating any additional protection circuits when one or two HP GPIO are driven before the FPGA is powered ON.

Its all about time.

 

Are the fpga inputs driven for years before the fpga power is applied , or is it milli seconds as power comes up ?

 

In the former, Id be looking at some sort of protection, probably sacrificial fet array, 

   in the latter, I'd not worry powering 1v8 into a 1v8 input,

Hi @drjohnsmith

 

Here in my case, it happens only for few seconds during system Power ON. And as you suggested I will proceed without any additional protection.

 

Thank you for your valuable time.
