In this chapter

This chapter describes features that were supported by NT200A02 FPGA images in the Link™ Capture Software 11.9 release but that are not supported by the 2 × 40 Gbit/s FM image and the 8 × 10 Gbit/s FM image for NT200A02 in the Link™ Capture Software 12.0 release or features that have been changed in these two images.

Not supported features

These features were supported by NT200A02 FPGA images in the Link™ Capture Software 11.9 release but are not supported by the 2 × 40 Gbit/s FM image and the 8 × 10 Gbit/s FM image for NT200A02 in the Link™ Capture Software 12.0 release:

SDRAM usage

The total memory size for all buffers in the onboard SDRAM of an NT200A02 is 12 Gbytes. In the NT200A02 FPGA images in the Link™ Capture Software 11.9 release, all 12 Gbytes were used for packet buffering. In the 2 × 40 Gbit/s FM image and the 8 × 10 Gbit/s FM image for NT200A02 in the Link™ Capture Software 12.0 release, only 1.5 Gbytes are used for packet buffering while 10.5 Gbytes are used for flow matching.
