Stratix IV Tecnical Problem

Dear Sir 

I have bought Stratix IV 4SGX230N from your site. We have read that this board supports SFP-HSMC card. Therefore we need to buy this card but our research needs high speed up to 10GB. My question is that can this board with SFP-HSMC card accept SFP+, XFP?. 

 

 

 

My Best Wishes

Re: Stratix IV Tecnical Problem

You did not buy the kit from this site. This is a user-maintained forum. 

 

Stratix IV GX devices do not support 10.3125Gbps transceiver rates. 

 

Stratix IV GT devices do, and Stratix V devices do. 

 

Cheers,

Re: Stratix IV Tecnical Problem

Thank you for your replaying  

Is the board (DUAL XAUI TO SFP+ HSMC BOARD) suitable with Stratix IV 4SGX230N to achieved up to 10Gbps ?

Do you have a link to the board? 

 

XAUI is 4 x 3.125Gbps, so if the board you refer to has a PHY chip that takes in XAUI and outputs 10.3125Gbps to SFP+, then yes, it would work with the Stratix IV GX FPGA.

Yes, this board will do what you need. 

 

NOTE: the HSMC connector on the Stratix IV GX kit supports 8 transceivers on the connector on the left, but only 6 on the right, so you can only use one of these boards and get two SFP+ ports. You might be able to add a second board, but you would only get one more SFP+ port.

From its name, hsmc_loopback, it implies loopback at the HSMC. This is not what you want for testing a XAUI/SFP+ HSMC board. Terasic likely have an example for that.  

 

I am sure there are several layers of loopback; 

 

1) A simple loopback where data from SFP+ is received over XAUI and then sent back over the link. 

 

2) A more complex loopback where data is received as 10GbE packets and the contents checked. 

 

You'll want to perform both sorts of checks. 

 

Cheers, 

Dave
