Transceiver compatibility, will a GTY work with a GTP

Jump to solution

I would like to use an aurora core to communicate between two FPGA.  The first FPGA is a RFSOC and will use a GTY and the other FPGA is a artix7 and will have a GTP.  My question is, will a GTY transceiver work with a GTP?

 

 

 

Edit:  Thanks for the help guys!  I will leave this open for an hour more, in case anyone wanted to contribute some more information.

I'd also recommend AC coupling the A7 GTP with US/US+ GTY.

You'll also need the Aurora 8b/10b core (pg046) because the 64b/66b core (pg074) doesn't support the 7 series GTP.

Cheers,

Yes, there are no electrical issues.  You just have to stay within the line rate bounds that the GTP can handle.

Yes. The difference between them is the maximum speed that they can work. (Also power, jitter etc.)

@barriet Thank you for your input, you saved me some reading.  I had not thought about the core yet.
