LogiCORE IP DisplayPort v3.2 - Is a DCM or PLL required to generate the RXUSRCLK2 for the Spartan-6 FPGA GTP?

Description

Is a PLL or DCM required to generate the RXUSRCLK2 for the Spartan-6 FPGA GTP?

Solution

The example designs in XAPP493 and XAPP593 use the Spartan-6 FPGA PLL/DCM, but is this necessary?

There is reference code that seems to indicate that the PLL or DCM is required, but this code is commented out by default. It is not necessary to use a PLL or DCM to generate the RXUSRCLK2. A BUFIO2 can be used to generate the RXUSRCLK2 input if a PLL or DCM is not available. If using the BUFIO2, please see (Xilinx Answer 56113).
