1.3. Calibration

Arria® 10 FPGAs contain a dedicated calibration engine to compensate for process variations. The calibration engine calibrates the analog portion of the transceiver to allow both the transmitter and receiver to operate at optimum performance.

The CLKUSR pin clocks the calibration engine. All transceiver reference clocks and the CLKUSR clock must be free running and stable at the start of FPGA configuration to successfully complete the calibration process and for optimal transceiver performance.

Note: For more information about CLKUSR electrical characteristics, refer to Intel® Arria® 10 Device Datasheet. The CLKUSR can also be used as an FPGA conf
