9. Debugging Transceiver Toolkit

The transceiver toolkit helps you optimize high-speed serial links in your board design by providing real-time control, monitoring, and debugging of the transceiver links running on your board.

The transceiver toolkit allows you to:

  • Control the transmitter or receiver channels to optimize transceiver settings and hardware features.
  • Test bit-error rate (BER) while running multiple links at the target data rate.
  • Control internal pattern generators and checkers, and enable loopback modes.
  • Run auto sweep tests to identify the best physical media attachment (PMA) settings for each link.
  • Test multiple devices across multiple boards simultaneously.
Note: The transceiver toolkit runs on the System Console framework.
