The UHD-SDI GT core implements the use of one or more serial transceivers in a Xilinx® UltraScale+™ device. See Product Specification for a detailed description of the core.
The information in this section is intended to supplement, not replace, the information in the UltraScale Architecture GTH Transceivers User Guide (UG576) and UltraScale Architecture GTY Transceivers User Guide (UG578). This information highlights features and operating requirements of the GTH/GTY transceivers that are of particular importance for UHD-SDI applications.
In the UHD-SDI GT core, the naming
convention followed for GTH/GTY transceiver ports is same as used in the
Architecture GTH Transceivers User Guide (UG576) and
UltraScale Architecture GTY Transceivers User Guide
(UG578). This convention is to use only
the base name of a port. When the
device transceiver wizard is used to create a GTH/GTY wizard module, all input ports
names have a suffix of
_in and all outputs have a
_out. For example, when a port named
txpllclksel is referred to in this document, the actual
name of that port in the GTH/GTY wrapper is
