10G Ethernet on the Picozed

Hi all,
    Does anybody know if the Picozed (with carrier kit) support 10G Ethernet connection through the SFP+ interface? Assuming of course one has access to all the appropriate Xilinx IP. 
Cheers

Hi there,

Hi there,

While the cage and routing is designed for higher speeds, I would not suggest this as the fastest PicoZed has 6.6Gbps GTX transceivers. If you want a true 10Gbs setup, please take a look at our Mini-Module Plus. It can be purchased in a configuration that exceeds the 10Gbps Ethernet speeds.

Thanks Dan, that makes

Thanks Dan, that makes complete sense. We'll just start out with a 1Gbps design for now and move on later.

Hi there,

Hi there,

You are most welcome.
If you take a look at the AZTEK Product brief, you can see on the second page a list of standard protocols and their speeds.
