GTP / PCIe - spinamathing - 10-01-2020

I was extremely excited when I found the Alchitry Au because I wanted to use the Artix 7's GTPs (to play with PCIe, amongst other things) but then when I dug into it I realized it's the FTG256 package that doesn't include the 4 GTPs Sad

Any chance youall will design / release an even fancier board that uses the CSG325 package instead so that we can use the GTPs and even do PCIe 2.0 4x lanes (with an adapter board)?  I'm assuming the FTG256 was selected due to the 1.0mm ball pitch instead of 0.8 and being slightly cheaper?

I don't have current plans for a bigger CSG325 version. The FTG256 was mainly chosen to avoid export restrictions that affect the higher pinout chips.
