Dear experts, I would like to establish a 16G (14.025Gb/s data rate) SFP+ links using the GTY transceivers provided by the KCU105 evaluation board. I am a little confused regarding the specification required to establish the link. From what I understand the sfp+ modules provided with the board support a maximum line rate of 10G, so I need to buy new modules. I am between those two http://www.mouser.ch/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=F

Both the SFP modules you mention are suited to 16G Fibrechannel.
The SFP+ modules will fit in the SFP+ cage on the KCU105.
The GTH transceivers on the FPGA (which I think has an FF package, -2 speedgrade) are rated to work at 16.375Gb/s, and will handle 14.025Gb/s just fine.
(BTW, "16GFC" is actually 14.025Gb/s on the line.)
Things I haven't checked:
