Kintex ultrascale GTH RX - Power Spliiter (SFP input)

are there someone who had used below?

 

1 SFP RX(P/N)  input  -> Power Splitter (both P/N) -> 2 RX (P/N) GTH 

 

is there something useful for Power Splitter?

 

if not, is it okay to use like this?

  - just short two signal (2 RX GTH)

Hello @whdgur0512 

Perhaps power splitter usage is very common among RF engineers, but this is not a common use-case for transceivers.
I've never seen Xilinx transceivers users using a power splitter for their application.
Xilinx transceivers are intended to be used with 1-on-1 connectivity.

I do not say that this use-case is impossible, but if you need to transmit the same data to different RX,
you can design FPGA using 2 TX channels, instead of using a power splitter.
