1G/2.5G Ethernet PCS/PMA or SGMII v15.2 - SGMII over LVDS option is not enabled in GUI for devices which do not have Transceivers

Description

I am using the 1G/2.5G Ethernet PCS/PMA or SGMII core.

In Vivado 2016.2 and prior versions, the SGMII over LVDS option is not enabled for -2 and -3 Artix and Zynq devices which do not have transceivers, even for supported devices.

Solution

This issue is seen with Vivado 2016.2 and previous versions.

You can generate the core using a Tcl flow as a work around.

For example:

create_ip -name gig_ethernet_pcs_pma -vendor xilinx.com -library ip -version 15.2 -module_name gig_ethernet_pcs_pma_0
set_property -dict [list CONFIG.SupportLevel {Include_Shared_Logic_in_Core} CONFIG.Standard {SGMII} CONFIG.Physical_Interface {LVDS}] [get_ips gig_ethernet_pcs_pma_0]

This issue is fixed in Vivado 2016.3.
