As per Data sheet Volume 4, 10G base KR is supported on Xeon D 1559. Below is the screen shot.
This is contradicting to the reply you have given to my colleague on this query
BDW_DE Ball Name does not show any pins for 10G Base KR. Above 2 documents are contradicting each other. Can some one please clarify if Xeon D 1559 has 10G base KR support? If supported, which pins have to be used?
Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.
The list showed in the second image attached to this thread is a partial list that shows the differences between the family processors listed on it. Due to this fact, it is unclear your observations listed on this thread.
Based on our previous explanation, could you please give a more detailed description of this situation?
We are waiting for your answer.
Thanks for your reply.
Please let us paraphrase our previous message, reviewing the second image and the provided information on your last communication, we found a 54-pin list that has only the different pins between the Broadwell-DE and Broadwell-DE NS without any reference of 10G Base KR information.
By the way, we have reviewed patiently but we cannot find any information related to incompatibility between 10G base KR and the processor Intel D-1559.
Based on this explanation, could you please explain to us in a detailed way the reasons to consider that the documents have inconsistencies and where we can find the cited incompatibility information that you have reported on your first communication?
We are waiting for your clarification.
Let me rephrase the query.
As per the above data sheet, Xeon D 1559 supports 2 ports of 10G Base KR.
In the bdw-de-ns-ballmap-567993-rev2-1.xls document (After considering the column BDW_DE Ball Name in 2nd column for Xeon D 1559) we are seeing only 1 port of 10G Base KR. Hence the inconsistency.
We want to use 2 ports of 10G Base KR in Xeon D 1559. Please suggest which pins to use
Thanks for your reply.
Table 1-3 included the pins related to these interfaces. You can find this information when you are logged into your Resource & Design Center (RDC) privileged account on page 19 of the Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1500 Product Family: Datasheet (Vol. 4 of 4) document # 335023 at the following website:
