Can NetFPGA-SUME use one SFP+ port for 10GbEthernet , another SFP+ port for 1GbEthernet ?


Question

Hello.

I would like to know how to use NetFPGA-SUME's  SFP+ ports.

I want to use one SFP+ port for 10GbEthernet ,and another SFP+ port for 1GbEthernet .
But, Reference manual says 'Four of the FPGA's high speed serial GTX transceivers on Bank 119 are dedicated to four SFP+ ports.' 
https://reference.digilentinc.com/_media/sume:netfpga-sume_rm.pdf

I wonder whether I can use each port for different speed of Ethernet at the same time , or not.

If you are familiar with it, would you please teach me?

Best Regards.

Hello,

I'm not that familiar with the SUME design, but usually in this kine of boards, each SFP is connected to an Ethernet IP in the FPGA, which in turns manage its rate (runtime link speed is dictated by the MAC, not by the transceiver). This means that each port should be independent from the others.
