I’ve an existing system I’d like to migrate from the XEM3010 to the XEM6010. My PCB has many differential pairs hardwired into it, which match the necessary differential pairs on the XEM3010. However, I’ve noticed a lot of the differential pairings do not match those on the XEM6010.
It appears the XEM6010 and XEM3010 share differential pairings until connector pins 45 and 46, after which the differential pins become mismatched between the modules. Some examples:
Matched differential pairs before connector pins 45/46:
- XEM3010 - JP3 pins 41 and 43 = differential pair L39N and L39P, respectively
- XEM6010 - JP3 pins 41 and 43 = differential pair L61P and L61N, respectively
Mis-matched differential pairs after connector pins 45/46:
- XEM3010 - JP3 pins 47 and 49 = differential pair L40N and L40P, respectively
- XEM6010 - JP3 pins 47 and 49 = non-pair L03N and L01P, respectively
Opal Kelly - Please could you check whether the mismatches I’ve identified are indeed mismatches, and not typos in the UM?
I appreciate your efforts to make the XEM6010 as compatible as possible with the XEM3010. However, if these are mismatches, my PCB will need redesigned to work with the XEM6010. Also, I think a quick note mentioning these mismatches would be helpful in the UM section, “Migrating from the XEM3010 to the XEM6010”.
Thanks very much and I look forward to your response.
