LVDS 1.8 interface in Artix 7

Jump to solution

Dear Sir,

 

I have connected ADC 1.8V LVDS output to ARTIX7 FPGA but ARTIX7 has only HR banks.

So whether can i operate ARTIX7 with 1.8V LVDS input.

 

 

Regards

Amit Kumar

Hi,

 

It is true that LVDS 1.8 is in HP banks and LVDS_25 is in HR banks but if you see Table 1-55, N/A is denoted under VCCO column, so if you follow the Notes(1)  you are good to go

LVDS Output signals from FPGA depends on VCCO but inputs can be any VCCO from 1.5 to 3.3V in HR banks under following conditions

Hope this clarifes

Dear Sir,

 

Thanks for reply.

I have seen that post. In that input signal is 2.5 V but VCCo of artix is 1.8V. That configuration is fine but in my case ADC o/p itself is 1.8 V LVDS and that is directly connected to ARTIX with VCCO of 1.8V. So whether my configuration is correct??

the reply in that link doesnt tell it all - the poster says that 1.5V VCCIO is also ok for LVDS input, but this may not always be true, if the driver has 1.25V common mode, then LVDS signal may swing very close to 1.5V already :(

as long as your driver does not drive above 1.8V too much you are safe.

Hi

 

Your configuration should be fine when the conditions listed in below link discussion are satisfied

Hi,

 

On your questions

"I have connected ADC 1.8V LVDS output to ARTIX7 FPGA but ARTIX7 has only HR banks.

So whether can i operate ARTIX7 with 1.8V LVDS input""

 

Why can't you operating 1.8V lLVDS output from ADC to the 1.8V LVDS IO's of artix7. HR banks do support 1.8V signals. Why do you doubt that? Check UG471 if you need any clarification.

Thanks,
Anirudh

Dear Sir ,

 

Thanks for reply. As per UG471, they told like HR bank can be operated from 1.8 to 3.3 V but for LVDS mode you have to use 2.5V. Also they have mentioned that for 1.8V LVDS, it has to be connected to HP banks but in ARTIX7 we dont have HP banks.Thats why I got doubt.

Amit

no it does not say that.

 

it says that HP banks with max 1.8V VCCIO can also support LVDS.

 

not that 1.8V LVDS must be in  HP banks.

 

two different statements.

Dear Sir,

 

If you see table 1-43 in page89 of ug471, it says LVDS is available for HP banks only and LVDS-25 is available for HR bank only.

Hi Amit,

              In continuation to your post I also in the phase of design of Artix 7 board and facing the same confusion. Plz answer the following: 

        1. Are you connecting VCCO 1.8v or 2.5v to that bank in which you are taking ADC (LVDS18) output? 

         2. Is your boad working fine with ADC value read by FPGA correctly?
