2.2. GPIO Features
The I/O bank within the GPIO interface supports differential and single-ended I/O standards. The GPIO bank has true differential I/O buffer pairs using the True Differential Signaling I/O standard—compatible with the LVDS, RSDS, Mini-LVDS, and LVPECL I/O standards. One true differential buffer pair forms a true differential channel.
- If you use SERDES, half of the true differential buffers support dedicated transmitter channels and the other half support dedicated true receiver channels. Refer to the device pin-out files for locations of the dedicated receiver and transmitter channels.
- If you do not use SERDES, you can configure any of the true differential buffers as transmitter or receiver channels. Each I/O lane support up to six transmitter and three receiver channels.
- The differential voltage referenced output pins are not true differential output pins. The differential voltage referenced I/O standards use two single-ended output pins where one of the output pins is inverted.
Power Pins for the I/O Buffers
The VCCIO_PIO and VCCPT pins power the I/O buffers located in the I/O bank within the GPIO interface.
