IBERT 7 series issue

Doing IBERT for 5 GT/s, with Refclk 100 MHz and data width 40 bits. I am trying to perform 2D Eye Scan for 10^-12 BER, but some how I am not able to complete the whole scan. Either hw connection lost or Progress - Incomplete occurs.

 

When I tried for 10^-10, 10^-11 or 10^-12 it always shows hw connection lost or Progress - Incomplete.

 

When I tried for 10^-9 it completes the scan.

 

Is there any reason for incomplete progress of scan?

 

Regards,

Prakash

The reason could be cable , speed or target board hardware issue .

How does the JTAG connection exist on the hardware? Do you connect to the board through network? Doing eye scan with 10^-10, 10^-11 or 10^-12 takes fairly long time.

 

If you find any error message from IBERT during the failure, please provide the details.

@venkata,

 

Sometimes progress shows incomplete or msg shown below,

Without disturbing the setup, in on going eye scan/sweep it shows this type of error.

 

Your help is appreciated a lot.

 

Regards,

Prakash

How do you connect to the hardware? Is it through network?

Can you check the Tcl console for any related messages when the error pops up?

Hello @venkata,

 

We have connected Vivado and Zynq-ZC706 board via Cable connector J3.

This type of message

"[Xicom 50-38] xicom: Core access failed. Check cable connectivity and that the target board is powered up then use the disconnect_hw_server and connect_hw_server to re-initialize the hardware target. Use open_hw_target to re-register the hardware device."

Looks like you are using digilent cable. Can you try the same test using platform usb cable?
