Signal

Direction

Description

derr_cor_ext_rcv

Output

Indicates a corrected error in the RX buffer. This signal is for debug only. It is not valid until the RX buffer is filled with data. This is a pulse, not a level, signal. Internally, the pulse is generated with the 500 MHz clock. A pulse extender extends the signal so that the FPGA fabric running at 250 MHz can capture it. Because the error was corrected by the IP core, no Application Layer intervention is required. 3

derr_cor_ext_rpl

Output

Indicates a corrected ECC error in the retry buffer. This signal is for debug only. Because the error was corrected by the IP core, no Application Layer intervention is required. 3

derr_rpl

Output

Indicates an uncorrectable error in the retry buffer. This signal is for debug only. 3

The signal is not available for Arria V and Cyclone V devices.

dlup_exit

Output

This signal is asserted low for one pld_clk cycle when the IP core exits the DLCMSM DL_Up state, indicating that the Data Link Layer has lost communication with the other end of the PCIe link and left the Up state. When this pulse is asserted, the Application Layer should generate an internal reset signal that is asserted for at least 32 cycles.

ev128ns

Output

Asserted every 128 ns to create a time base aligned activity.

ev1us

Output

Asserted every 1µs to create a time base aligned activity.

hotrst_exit

Output

Hot reset exit. This signal is asserted for 1 clock cycle when the LTSSM exits the hot reset state. This signal should cause the Application Layer to be reset. This signal is active low. When this pulse is asserted, the Application Layer should generate an internal reset signal that is asserted for at least 32 cycles.

int_status[3:0]

Output

These signals drive legacy interrupts to the Application Layer as follows:

  • int_status[0]: interrupt signal A
  • int_status[1]: interrupt signal B
  • int_status[2]: interrupt signal C
  • int_status[3]: interrupt signal D
ko_cpl_spc_data[11:0]

Output

The Application Layer can use this signal to build circuitry to prevent RX buffer overflow for completion data. Endpoints must advertise infinite space for completion data; however, RX buffer space is finite. ko_cpl_spc_data is a static signal that reflects the total number of 16 byte completion data units that can be stored in the completion RX buffer.

ko_cpl_spc_header[7:0]

Output

The Application Layer can use this signal to build circuitry to prevent RX buffer overflow for completion headers. Endpoints must advertise infinite space for completion headers; however, RX buffer space is finite. ko_cpl_spc_header is a static signal that indicates the total number of completion headers that can be stored in the RX buffer.

l2_exit

Output

L2 exit. This signal is active low and otherwise remains high. It is asserted for one cycle (changing value from 1 to 0 and back to 1) after the LTSSM transitions from l2.idle to detect. When this pulse is asserted, the Application Layer should generate an internal reset signal that is asserted for at least 32 cycles.

lane_act[3:0]

Output

Lane Active Mode: This signal indicates the number of lanes that configured during link training. The following encodings are defined:

  • 4’b0001: 1 lane
  • 4’b0010: 2 lanes
  • 4’b0100: 4 lanes
  • 4’b1000: 8 lanes
ltssmstate[4:0]

Output

LTSSM state: The LTSSM state machine encoding defines the following states:

  • 00000: Detect.Quiet
  • 00001: Detect.Active
  • 00010: Polling.Active
  • 00011: Polling.Compliance
  • 00100: Polling.Configuration
  • 00101: Polling.Speed
  • 00110: config.Linkwidthstart
  • 00111: Config.Linkaccept
  • 01000: Config.Lanenumaccept
  • 01001: Config.Lanenumwait
  • 01010: Config.Complete
  • 01011: Config.Idle
  • 01100: Recovery.Rcvlock
  • 01101: Recovery.Rcvconfig
  • 01110: Recovery.Idle
  • 01111: L0
  • 10000: Disable
  • 10001: Loopback.Entry
  • 10010: Loopback.Active
  • 10011: Loopback.Exit
  • 10100: Hot.Reset
  • 10101: LOs
  • 11001: L2.transmit.Wake
  • 11010: Recovery.Speed
  • 11011: Recovery.Equalization, Phase 0
  • 11100: Recovery.Equalization, Phase 1
  • 11101: Recovery.Equalization, Phase 2
  • 11110: recovery.Equalization, Phase 3
3 Debug signals are not rigorously verified and should only be used to observe behavior. Debug signals should not be used to drive custom logic.
