Mistake in the US+ Product Selection Guide ?

Dear Xilinx users,

can it be that there is a mistake in the Kintex Ultrascale+ Product Selection Guide.?

Does the smallest devices KU3P and KU5P have GTY transceivers with 32Gbps, while the bigger devices have only GTH transceivers supporting data rates only up to 16Gbps ???

 

I assume this is a mistake isn't it?

Stgateizo,

 

Nope not a mistake. You can check this in vivado as well. Not everyone needs 32.75Gpbs transceivers. These are meant for different set of applications which do not require them.

 

Regards,

T

Re: Mistake in the US+ Product Selection Guide ?

Hello tenzinc,

I just wondered why the DP 1.2 and DP 1.4 Rx/Tx Subsystem is not supported by KU3P and KU5P, but with KU9P and bigger devices, although the KU3P and KU5P have faster transceivers. It seems it has nothing to do with the transceivers?

Hello tenzinc,

so if I want to integrate a DP1.2 or DP1.4 Rx/Tx Subsystem together with a 25Gbe ethernet subsystem, then the smallest device is a KU11P ???

Hi @stgateizo,

 

DP1.4 SS IP will support GTY in 2018.3. So you can pick any of these devices ;)

 

As always, when you are starting a new project, you should contact your FAE to find the best solution for your needs.

Re: Mistake in the US+ Product Selection Guide ?

Hellor florentw,

thank you for this information. It's good to know that the small US+ devices will support DP1.4 in Vivado 2018.3.

 

You said:

"As always, when you are starting a new project, you should contact your FAE to find the best solution for your needs."

 

In principal I agree to your statement, and I will defenitely contact our FAE when we would start a new project, but if I would contact our FAE each time I'm brainstorming about possbile new projects, I think our FAE would not be pleased. By the way, if I would contact our FAE, I'm sure it would nevertheless result in a Service Request, but with the drawback of some additional delay...

 

Best regards
