TEBF0808-04 SFP+ vendor-locked?
« on: March 22, 2018, 03:56:07 PM »
I have a question regarding the Dual-SFP+ of the TE0808-04-09-1EE-S Starter Kit:

Is the SFP+ port vendor-locked?

In my case: Is it compatible with Ubiquiti-Transceivers?

Hello,

Board provides just interface to SFP+ connector. All vendor-specific logic can be only in core (for example "1G/2.5G Ethernet PCS/PMA or SGMII") or in the Linux driver.
I didn't find any information about vendor-lock in FPGA core https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/ip_documentation/gig_ethernet_pcs_pma/v16_0/pg047-gig-eth-pcs-pma.pdf.
We don't have experience with Ubiquiti-Transceivers, but all SFP+ Transceivers we tested before works.

Best regards
