The P-Tile Debug Toolkit supports the Eye Viewer tool that allows you to plot the eye diagram for each channel. The Eye Viewer tool:
  • Provides a pictorial representation of the eye for each channel, both in the bifurcated (e.g., x8x8) and non-bifurcated (e.g., x16) configurations.
  • Provides information on the total eye height, total eye width and eye measurement information from the center of the eye to the four corners (left, right, top, bottom).
  • Uses fixed step sizes in the horizontal and vertical directions.
  • Performs the eye measurement at the following bit error rates (BER):
    • 8.0 GT/s (Gen3) @ e-8, 100% confidence level
    • 16.0 GT/s (Gen4) @ e-9, 90% confidence level
