Intel® Stratix® 10 TX Signal Integrity Development Kit

The Intel® Stratix® 10 TX Signal Integrity (SI) Development Kit offers a complete design environment that includes both hardware and software for developing Intel® Stratix® 10 TX FPGA designs.

Intel® Stratix® 10 TX Signal Integrity Development Kit

You can use this development kit to:

  • Evaluate transceiver performance up to 28.3 Gbps for H-Tile and 58 Gbps for E-Tile
  • Generate and check pseudo-random binary sequence (PRBS) patterns
  • 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), 10G/25G/50G/100G/200G/400G Ethernet, and other major standards
