I have a ML605 board and with a DSP board using the RapidIO protocol. This board has two FMC connectors (HPC and LPC) and a PCIe interface, I need 4 Multi-Gigabit transceivers (MGTs) and both the PCIe and FMC HPC have 8 (the LPC has only one).
In my design I am already using the FMC HPC connector for another purpose and I would like to know if I can use the MGTs in the PCIe for the RapidIO protocol, or is this interface only for PCIe?

Your designing with an FPGA so it can be anything. The real question is, can you connect another board with a RapidIO device on it to the PCIe fingers on the ML605? And the only that can start to answer this is yourself, because no one else knows what system you are attempting to prototype.
