Genesys 2 - traces for GTX/gerber files

Question

Hi all,

Is the gerber file for the Genesys 2 board available to the public?

Or can you tell me location of traces between FPGA/FMC? I see eight traces with meandres, are the traces for GTX?

Thank you.

Hi @kvantumnuly,

The gerber file for the Genesys 2 is not generally available to the public, but I have asked the appropriate person at Digilent about the traces in question.

Thank you,
JColvin

Hi @kvantumnuly,

I heard back from our layout person at Digilent with regards to the traces. Here is what they told me:

"Or can you tell me location of traces between FPGA/FMC?"
All of the over 70 differential pairs and signal ended signals are routed on the top, bottom and 3 internal signal layers.  They are physically routed between the FPGA and FMC connector.
"I see eight traces with meandres, are the traces for GTX?"
I assume you are referring to the 15 differential pairs routed on the top copper layer.  The majority of the those pairs are routed to the J1E schematic symbol (sheet 3 of the public schematic).
Thanks,
Garrett

Thank you,
