AR# 41734: 12.x/13.1 ChipScope IBERT - Virtex-6 GTH Transceivers Production Silicon Support
12.x/13.1 ChipScope IBERT - Virtex-6 GTH Transceivers Production Silicon Support
This Answer Record discusses the ChipScope IBERT support for ES and Production GTH Transceivers in Virtex-6 HXT devices.
The GTH Transceiver default attribute settings are different between the ES and Production silicon versions of Virtex-6 HXT devices.
The ChipScope IBERT tool (released with ISE software versions 12.x/13.1 only) support the ES silicon settings of GTH Transceivers. The IBERT version (released with ISE 13.1 Update) supports the Production silicon as well as ES silicon settings of Virtex-6 GTH Transceivers.
