It is possible to share a GT Quad with more than one Bridge IPs based on their number of lanes, PLL requirements, and other configurations. For example, a GT Quad can be shared by two x2 lane Bridge IPs. To achieve this, you can drop two Bridge IPs in the IP integrator canvas, configure Bridge IP window, and click Block Automation. The Block Automation window opens, as shown in the following figure. This figure shows the Block Automation window for two Bridge IPs. You can perform block automation for both the Bridge IPs simultaneously or one after the other.
