Virtex-II Pro, RocketIO - Can the MGT transmit if data on the Rx inputs is not toggling?

Description

If my Rxp/Rxn inputs are not toggling (or are floating), can my transceiver continue to transmit?

Solution

Yes, the transceiver can continue. All that is required to transmit is the reference clock (REFCLK).
