Virtex-6 FPGA Broadcast Connectivity Kit - Cook Technologies board documentation mismatch

Description

There is a contradiction between the FPGA Broadcast Mezzanine Card User Guide (v1.0)(UG753) and the PDF supplied in the ZIP files from Cook Technologies (FMC AVB Design (051).pdf) regarding the pinout of VSOUT and OEOUT:
http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/boards_and_kits/ug753_FMC_Broadcast.pdf.

Which document is correct?

Solution

The FPGA Broadcast Mezzanine Card User Guide (v1.0)(UG753) shows VSOUT connects from the Spartan-3A FPGA to pin LA31_P of the FMC connector; OEOUT connects to pin LA31_N.

Cook Technologies' documentation shows VSOUT connects from Spartan-3A FPGA to pin LA14_P of the FMC connector; OEOUT connects to pin LA14_N.

The FPGA Broadcast Mezzanine Card User Guide (v1.0)(UG753) is correct.VSOUT is on LA31_P, while OEOUT is on LA31_N.

The Cook Technologies document has been updated and is live on their Web site (August 2011).
