3.9.3. Running Custom Traffic Tests ( Stratix® V only)

After programming the FPGA with your debugging design, loading the design in the toolkit, and linking hardware, follow these steps to run custom traffic tests:
  1. In the Channel Manager, click Setup.
  2. Select the associated reconfiguration controller.
  3. Click Create Transceiver Link and click Close.
  4. Click the Receiver Eye Viewer tab.
  5. Select Eye Viewer as the Test mode. The Eye Viewer mode displays test results as a bathtub curve, heat map, or eye contour representing bit error and phase offset data.
  6. Specify the PRBS Test pattern.
  7. For Checker mode, select Serial bit comparator.
    The checker mode option is only available after you turn on Enable Eye Viewer block and Enable Bit Error Rate Block for the Reconfiguration Controller component.
  8. Specify Run length and Eye Viewer settings to control the test coverage and type of Eye Viewer results displayed, respectively.
  9. Click Start to run the pattern with your settings. Eye Viewer uses the current channel settings to start a phase sweep of the channel. The phase sweep runs 32 iterations. As the run progresses, view the status under Eye Viewer status.
  10. When the run completes, the chart displays the characteristics of each run. Click Stop to halt the test, change the PMA settings, and re-start the test. Click Create Report to export data to a table format for further viewing.
