Two PCIe Blocks instantiated on the PL side

Jump to solution

Hi,

can I instantiate two PCIe blocks in the PL side, one used like root port and the other one like endpoint?

I am using a zcu106 board and I would use PCIe Gen3.

Thanks,

  Raffaele

The PL fabric in the XCZU7EV on the ZCU106 contains 2 integrated PCIe blocks. One of them is pre-wired to the PCIe edge connector of the board. The other can be connected to an on-board header (x8 configuration) for use with an FMC card such as this:

The edge connector interface would be more useful as an endpoint. The FMC-connected PCIe could be a root port.
