HSSTP Description

The High Speed Serial Trace Port [HSSTP] specification uses the connector defined in the HSSTP specification, the Aurora protocol developed by Xilinx and the electrical interface defined by XAUI. Refer to the main HSSTP page covering the standard.

Four dual-row connector sizes are allowed; 22-pins, 34-pins, 46-pins and 70-pins. The HST-46 connector [covered here], provides eight differential transmit pairs, a Vsense line, five JTAG pins, six Vendor I/O pins, a Reset line and an optional differential clock line.
Two pairs of reserved pins are added to this connector.
Ground pins are also supplied per differential pair, which are longer and mate first.
The Vendor I/O pins are SoC specific and are not defined in the HSSTP specification.
The pinout variations are provided below, shown by number of pins.
