Document Table of Contents Serial Bit Checker

The serial bit checker is available when you enable EyeQ in the transceiver reconfiguration controller. It provides a means of estimating the number of errors that occur between the captured CDR signal and the sampled EyeQ signal. The advantage of enabling this block, is that it allows bit error register (BER) monitoring over live traffic.

This feature is also available for PCIe configurations.
