3.9.1. Running BER Tests

BER tests help you assess signal integrity. Follow these steps to run BER tests across a transceiver link:
  1. In the Channel Manager, click Control Transceiver Link.
  2. Specify a PRBS Test pattern
  3. If your device supports setting a Checker mode, set to Data pattern checker.
  4. Try different values of Reconfiguration, Generator, or Checker settings, if available.
  5. Click Start to run the pattern with your settings.
  6. If your device supports error injection, you can click Inject Error to inject error bits.
  7. You can also Reset the counter, or Stop the test.
    Note: Intel® Arria® 10 devices do not support Inject Error if you use the hard PRBS Pattern Generator and Checker in the system configuration.
