Xilinx Inc. has revealed that its 7 Series GTH transceiver has successfully completed testing for 10GBASE-KR LogiCORE IP at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), a laboratory that tests data networking technologies. This certifies the device fully meets UNH-IOL's receiver (Rx) and transmitter (Tx) electrical and protocol compliance tests for backplane applications.

This achievement enables OEMs to develop high-performance network and data centre solutions with 10Gb or 40Gb backplanes that conform to the IEEE Std 802.3 using Xilinx's 10GBASE-KR LogiCORE IP and enable 40GBASE-KR4 LogiCORE IP on Virtex-7 XT and HT devices with GTH transceivers.

"Passing these compliance tests is a significant milestone in the development of our 10GBASE-KR 10-Gigabit serial interface, which is part of our expanding portfolio for addressing the need for service providers to deliver more bandwidth-intensive services intelligently to minimise both capital expenditures and operational expenses," said Raj Seelam, director of solutions marketing at Xilinx. "We worked closely with UNH-IOL in this effort, providing equipment, boards and experts who worked side-by-side with the UNH-IOL testing teams to achieve this milestone."

Several devices and boards were used in this extensive compliance testing effort, including the Virtex-7 FPGA VC7215 board featuring the XC7VX690T-3FFG1927E device.

The 10GBASE-KR LogiCORE IP is available in the Vivado Design Suite.
