Which FPGA pin for Ethernet?

Hi all

I would like to use the 5CEBA4F17C8N FPGA with two Ethernet ports connected to it (and some LED an switches). Now my question, is there any recommendation which pins/IO banks i should use?

I think for 25MHz clock input i will use 3B.

Thanks!

Hi @Inematov​ , Just trying to help here. I am not sure I understand the problem statement. But if i take the question literally, shouldnt the Ethernet port connect to the Transceiver pins and the LEDs to GPIO pins?

Hi, the question was more about with FPGA Pin i should use to connect the data lines from the PHY. Meanwhile after some hours of reading documents and application notes, its clear ;-)

Thank you.
