Many of the XPLL ports are identical to those for the MMCM (see MMCM Port Descriptions). For dynamic reconfiguration port description, see Dynamic Reconfiguration Port (DRP). The additional ports available for the XPLL are described in this section.

The XPLL provides a dedicated CLKOUTPHY clock output to the XPHY. There is special logic associated with this clock output to support the synchronization between the programmable logic clock and the XPHY clock generated by the VCO. CLKOUTPHY is gated by the CLKOUTPHYEN signal from the programmable logic. When the CLKOUTPHYEN signal is asserted High from the programmable logic, CLKOUTPHY starts toggling so that the rising edge is aligned with the rising edge of the XPLL input clock. To ensure CLKOUTPHY is aligned with the clock that drives data to XPHY nibbles in an XPIO bank, the data clock has to be the same clock as the XPLL input clock. The CLKOUTPHYEN signal is synchronized to a divide by 8 clock dividers and gates the CLKOUTPHY clock. CLKOUTx_DIVIDE and CLKOUT_MULT are synchronized to the internal clock. However, phase alignment between multiple XPLL CLKOUTPHY clocks is only ensured when both the CLKFBOUT_MULT and CLKOUT[0:1]_DIVIDE values are set to 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16. Rising edges do not align for CLKFBOUT = 3, 5, 6, 7, 9,… The following figure shows how clock division and multiplexing is achieved for enabling the CLKOUTPHY clock based on the CLKOUTPHYEN signal and CLKOUTPHY_DIVIDE attribute.
