Virtex-II Pro RocketIO - Fibre Channel 2 Gb/s jitter compliance

Description

Does the Virtex-II Pro RocketIO meet the jitter compliance specifications for 2 Gb/s Fibre Channel?

Solution

Shortly before August 31, 2004, the Jitter Tolerance and Jitter Generation numbers published in the latest (August 2004) Virtex-II Pro data sheet were updated with additional data showing that the Virtex-II Pro MGTs do meet the 2G Fibre Channel specifications. These numbers were updated to show performance at 2.125Gbps specifically. (The original data sheet numbers were for 3.125 Gbps operation.)
