Arria® 10 GX Transceiver Signal Integrity Development Kit

Description of product

Figure 1. Arria 10 GX Transceiver Signal Integrity Development Kit

The Intel® Transceiver Signal Integrity Development Kit, Arria® 10 GX Edition helps you thoroughly evaluate the signal integrity of 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.

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 to PCI Express* (PCIe*), Gbps Ethernet (GbE), XAUI, CEI-6G, Serial RapidIO*, high-definition serial digital interface (HD-SDI), and other major standards
