8.2.5. Verifying Hardware Connections
After creating links, verify that the channels connect correctly and make sure that there are physical connections between the channels you want to test on the hardware. This precaution saves time in the workflow.
- Start the generator on the TX channel.
- Start the checker on the RX channel.
- In the Channel Parameters tab, in a RX channel pane, verify that the Locked to data indicator is green and the bit error rate (BER) is very low or zero.
Note: The Locked to ref clock status goes green and red randomly. Ignore the Locked to ref clock status when the Locked to data status is green.
