Virtex-II Pro / Pro X Package - Is there pin compatibility across packages?


Is there pin compatibility between packages of Virtex-II Pro / Pro X devices?


No, Virtex-II Pro packages are not pin-compatible, because the MGT I/O pins are in different locations in different packages. 


For example, compare the composite pin-out diagrams in the Hardware User Guide for FF896 and FF1152 packages: 

- The FF896 row AK has the RocketIO power and I/O pins. 

- The FF1152 row AK does not have the RocketIO pins. 


There is pin compatibility for Virtex-II Pro / Pro X devices within a specific package. 


For more information on pin-out tables and diagrams, see the Virtex-II Pro and Virtex-II Pro X FPGA User Guide at: 

Select PCB Design Considerations -> Pinout Information or Pinout Diagram.
