It is possible to share a GT Quad with more than one Bridge IP 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 in two Bridge IPs in the IP integrator canvas, configure Bridge IP GUI, and click Block Automation. The Block Automation GUI opens, as shown in the following figure. This figure shows the Block Automation GUI for two Bridge IPs. You can either choose to do Block Automation for both the Bridge IPs simultaneously, or one after the other.
