Intel® Arria® 10 GX Transceiver Signal Integrity Development Kit

The Intel® Arria® 10 GX Transceiver Signal Integrity Development Kit helps you thoroughly evaluate the signal integrity of Intel® Arria® 10 GX transceivers. This development kit delivers a complete design environment that includes all hardware and software you need to start taking advantage of the performance and capabilities available in Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGAs.

Intel® Arria® 10 GX Transceiver Signal Integrity Development Kit

With this kit, you can:

  • Evaluate transceiver performance from 1 Gbps up to 17.4 Gbps (GX)
  • Generate and check pseudo-random binary sequence (PRBS) patterns via an easy-to-use GUI
  • Dynamically change differential output voltage (VOD), pre-emphasis, and equalization settings to optimize transceiver performance for your channel
  • Perform jitter analysis
  • Verify physical medium attachment (PMA) compliance with PCI Express* (PCIe*), Gbps Ethernet (GbE), XAUI, CEI-6G, Serial RapidIO*, high-definition serial digital interface (HD-SDI), and other major standards
