Transceiver Toolkit for 28-nm Devices (OTCVR1100)

39 Minutes Online Course

Course Description

Are you trying to improve the signal integrity of your transceiver links? This can be a challenge with the multi-gigabit interfaces used in FPGA designs. This training introduces you to the Transceiver Toolkit found in the Quartus® Prime software v. 15.1 & show how to use it to optimize your high-speed channel’s transmitter & receiver analog settings. Llearn how to build a design so that you can connect to its transceiver channel buffers & perform various link tests. Using Transceiver Toolkit features like Auto Sweep & EyeQ, you can verify & potentially improve the Bit Error Rate (BER) of your system.

This training covers the Cyclone® V, Arria® V & Stratix® V device families. For Arria 10 devices, see the training, Transceiver Toolkit for Arria 10 Devices.

At Course Completion

You will be able to:

  • Download a Cyclone V, Arria V or Stratix V design example to perform link tests or incorporate Transceiver Toolkit support into your own design
  • Setup and launch the Transceiver Toolkit to perform a high speed link test
  • Perform BER testing using the Auto Sweep and EyeQ features in the toolkit
  • Select the best analog settings to optimize the signal integrity of your transceiver link

Skills Required

  • Basic knowledge of the Quartus software including Qsys
  • General understanding of FPGA architecture including transceiver architecture
  • General understanding of transceiver reconfiguration concepts
