Alternatives for 10G MAC + XAUI on Artix-7?

Jump to solution

I plan to use the 10G Ethernet MAC plus the XAUI Logicore IPs to interface an external PHY with XAUI interface.

The XAUI block is deprecated, they say still supported in 2018.3 but that sounds to me like it can disappear at any moment and in case I run into problems there will be no support.

So, is there any other active, supported, alive way to interface a 10G PHY with XAUI from an Artix-7?

Hi, 

it's not an obligation to use XAUI IP.

You can use Transceiver wizard in the goal to configure your transceiver in 4Tx and 4Rx with 8b/10b encode/decoder and 3.125Gbps frequency rate.

After you code a MDIO interface in VHDL or VERILOG. It's an easy protocol.

Transceiver wizard will be supported for a long time.
