Hello-

The best place to reference how to do this is the Xilinx documentation here:

They have a variety of software manuals and application notes that will help you do what you want.

Hi,

Thank you for your response. I already read the xilinx data sheet. It says that i could use the differential pair but it doesnt show how to do it. Please help. Thank you so much… :slight_smile:

The better documents to look at are the application notes and the guides. There is a guide on XST if you are using the Xilinx synthesis tools. That’s the best place to start. There is also Constraints guide which you may need depending on the I/O configuration you will need.

Also, note that the XEM3001 has all I/O bank voltages tied to 3.3v. There are some restrictions on what differential standards can be used with this voltage. You might find this forum topic helpful:
