8. Debugging F-Tile Transceiver Links

The Transceiver Toolkit helps you optimize high-speed serial links in your board design by providing real-time control, monitoring, and debugging of the F-tile transceiver links running on your board.
The F-Tile 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.
  • Run autosweep tests to identify the best PMA settings for each link.
  • View the receiver horizontal and vertical eye margin during testing.
  • Test multiple devices across multiple boards simultaneously.
Note: The F-Tile Transceiver Toolkit runs from the System Console framework.
