why are these lanes crossed like that? do I need to keep them that way? when connecting additional channels do I need to follow this convention? thanks!
I've branched this into a new thread because the first questions from the old one were already answered and these new ones are somehow not related to them.
If you look at the transceiver quad you will see that the lanes are not connected 1 to 1 on the receive and transmit paths, to the corresponding channels in the quad. The layout of the board has the tx/rx channels mixed up.
If you are developing your own board, depending on how you are connecting the lanes to pins, you need to change the design accordingly.
