Virtex-7 FPGA VC707 Evaluation Kit - MGTVCCAUX Voltage Clarification

Description

UG885, VC707 Evaluation Board for the Virtex-7 FPGA User Guide (v1.0),shows MGTVCCAUX as a 1.0V power rail. The VC707 schematic also shows MGTVCCAUX 1.0V @ 10A.

However, the Virtex-7 FPGAs Data Sheet: DC and Switching Characteristics Data Sheet (DS183) gives a range of 1.75V to 1.85V for MGTVCCAUX (with a typical value of 1.8V).

What is the correct value for MGTVCCAUX on the VC707?

Solution

The recommended operating conditions given in the Virtex-7 FPGAs Data Sheet: DC and Switching Characteristics Data Sheet (DS183) have been followed on the VC707, and MGTVCCAUX for the VC707 Evaluation Kit is 1.8V.

TheUG885 (v1.1) has been updatedto reflect this correct MGTVCCAUX value.
