7 Series FPGAs Transceiver Wizard v2.6 - Release Notes and Known Issues

Description

This answer record contains the Release Notes and Known Issues for the 7 Series FPGAs Transceiver Wizard v2.6, released with the ISE 14.6 and Vivado 2013.2 design tools.

Solution

Release Notes


  • Version 2.6
  • New Protocol Templates added for GTH - Interlaken
  • Updated Port and Attribute Settings to support GTX, GTH and GTP Production Silicon
  • Increased line rate support for GTZ Transceivers
  • Support for Asymmetrical data widths on TX and RX (core generation and implementation only, not supported in simulation)

Known Issues and Limitations

  • For GTH and GTP, the Wizard generates settings compatible for Production Silicon. Hardware validation of these settings is work in progress.
  • The Wizard generates Verilog wrappers for GTZ. VHDL is not supported.
  • For GTZ designs, the Wizard supports line rates and reference clocks shown in the GUI. No other values are tested or validated in hardware.
  • It is recommended that the Beachfront module generated for GTZ designs should NOT be modified by the user. Any edits made by the user might lead to unexpected results.
  • Support for Asymmetrical data widths on TX and RX (core generation and implementation only, not supported in simulation).
  • Please note that Vivado flow should be used for implementation of all SSIT devices.
  • Please note that the protocol templates provided by the Wizard are not characterized on hardware.
