Hi, I am interested to connect two FPGAs on my PCB and I want to achieve 40 Gbit/s data transmision. Any ideas what kind of connection should I use to achieve that speed? Maybe someone of you have already done it?
e.g. 16 lanes of 2,5Gbit/s PCIe
which FPGA? How much knowldege do you have? Some FPGAs offer serdes blocks which are capable of up to 32Gbit/s per link. But those are complicated and have many requirements regarding routing quality.

You want high-speed as easy as SPI? What´s yor problem?
@Schlumpf I have no problem, i want to help komo. Either you have a problem to distinguish between me and Komo or you see to be very rude. @Komo Some more information would be helpfull. But to work with an design which processes 40 Gbit/s will bring some surprising difficulties for you. best regards

Xilinx offers you FPGAs with high-speed serdes. For 40 gbps (pure net rate?) you will currently need multiple lanes. It is useful to pack a lightweight protocol core like Aurora on it. There you can combine 5x 10,3Gbps links and have a nice streaming Interface on both sides.
