How to design PCI-e External Cable by virtex 6

I have a project to design,  using Virtex-6 LX130T to  design   PCI-e External Cable Connector, not  the Edge Connector.

 

I check the PCI Express® External Cabling  Specification  Revision 1.0 ,found there are some different signal between the

 

External Cable and Edge Connector.   like, SB_RTN, CPWRON etc. 

 

And I don't  know the how to design the schemtic,  has anyone done this kind of design?

 

If I complete a hardware design,  how to  the get the corresponding IP core ? It's seem the Core generator don't  provide

 

the IP core for  PCI-e External Cable.

 

Thank.

I realize that you posted this question a few months ago, but I'm wondering if you solved this yet.

 

If not, I just completed an article that may help answer some of your questions.  I've designed a board using PCI Express External Cabling for a Virtex-5 LX110T, but it should be applicable to the Virtex-6 as well.

 

If you have successfully completed your design, I would like to compare notes and see what mught be different for the Virtex-6.

 

I see this question pop up from time-to-time which is why I published this article:
