LogiCORE IP Ethernet 1000BASE-X PCS/PMA or SGMII v11.4 - SGMII LVDS interface support for Artix-7 and Zynq devices

Description

The 1000BASE-X PCS/PMA or SGMII v11.4 core product guide only lists SGMII LVDS support for Virtex-7 and Kintex-7 devices.

It has been determined that the SGMII LVDS interface can also be used in -2 speed grade or faster HR I/O banks for Artix-7 and Zynq devices.

Solution

The GUI allows for an SGMII LVDS interface to be selected for Artix-7 devices.

This generated core can be used to target Artix-7 or Zynq devices.

The software flags a min period error in the ISE 14.3 and 2012.3 design tools that is scheduled to be fixed in 14.4 and 2012.4.

For a patch to the ISE 14.3 design tool, see (Xilinx Answer 52640).

For a patch to the Vivado 2012.3 tool, see (Xilinx Answer 52534).
