XPE 2013.1 - GTX's power consumption for LPM and DFE


In XPE, if GTX configuration is changed from DFE to LPM mode, MGTAVTT increases power consumption for 7 series devices.

Why does this occur?


The is because GTX CTLE in LPM mode is auto-adaptive, while in DFE mode it is manual, resulting in an increase in power consumption.

Also, the adaption circuitry (LPM) is powered by AVTT, but DFE is powered by AVCC.
