If migrating from a 7 series device with GTX or GTH transceivers to an AMD UltraScale™ device with GTH transceivers, the prefixes of the optional transceiver debug ports for single-lane cores are changed from “gt0”, “gt1” to “gt”, and the suffix “_in” and “_out” are dropped. For multi-lane cores, the prefixes of the optional transceiver debug ports gt(n) are aggregated into a single port. For example: gt0_gtrxreset and gt1_gtrxreset now become gt_gtrxreset [1:0]. This is true for all ports, with the exception of the DRP buses, which follow the convention of gt(n)_drpxyz.

Note: It is important that designs are updated to use the new transceiver debug port names. For more information about migration to UltraScale devices, see the UltraScale Architecture Migration: Methodology Guide (UG1026).

Perform any one of the following steps when migrating to an AMD Versal™ Adaptive SoC:

  • Instantiate Aurora IP in the IP integrator. For more information, see AMD IP - GT Quad Integration.
  • Generate Aurora IP from the Vivado IP catalog, open example design. Versal adaptive SoC Aurora IP example design has an IP integrator based reference design as shown in Figure 1. Refer the example design wrapper file <IP_inst_name>_exdes_bd_wrapper as shown in Figure 2. This wrapper file has the necessary connections between Aurora and gt_quadbase IP. For more information, see Versal Adaptive SoC Transceivers Wizard LogiCORE IP Product Guide (PG331)
