IBERT UltraScale+ GTR can be used to evaluate and monitor GTR transceivers in Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC devices. With this feature, you can accomplish the following tasks:

  • Perform eye scans with user data
  • Change GTR settings
  • View link status
  • Check the "lock" status of all PLLs used by all GTR lanes

However, IBERT GTR does not provide the following capabilities:

  • Perform eye scans with raw PRBS data patterns
  • Measure Bit Error Ratio (no bit or error counters)

Note that this solution is software based, meaning that no IP or logic is required in the programmable logic of the device.
