Answer Record - GT Settings Update (Xilinx Answer 47128) (Xilinx Answer 51625) NR*


Table 3: GTP Transceivers

IES Silicon GES Silicon Production Silicon
Aurora 8B10B IP Version v8.3(ISE) v8.3(ISE)
v8.3 Rev1(Vivado)
v8.3*(ISE)
v10.3 (or) later (Vivado)
GT Wizard Version v2.4 v2.4

v3.0 (or) later   (Vivado)
Answer Record - GT Settings Update (Xilinx Answer 51369) (Xilinx Answer 51369) NR*


NR* - Not Released
v8.3* - Not a production support version for the particular transceiver

Notes:

  1. The Core versions mentioned in the tables above are recommended to be used when targeting Aurora 8B10B to the respective silicon.
  2. The latest version of the Aurora 8B10B IP can be targeted to earlier silicon versions.
    This requires the GT settings to be updated to suit the silicon version.
    Please use the correct version of GT wizard (mentioned above) that supports the silicon version for generating the GT wrapper.
