Name Description
[-quiet] Ignore command errors
[-verbose] Suspend message limits during command execution
<hw_sio_links> hardware SIO links




Removes the specified communication links between TX and RX objects on the GTs of the IBERT debug core defined on the current hardware device.

AMD Vivado™ Serial I/O analyzer is a link-based analyzer, which lets you link between any transmitter and receiver within the IBERT design. The links define the communication paths and protocols between transmitters and receivers of the GigaBit transceivers on the device. This command removes those links.

This command returns a list of link objects on the IBERT debug core, or returns an error if it fails.


-quiet - (Optional) Execute the command quietly, returning no messages from the command. The command also returns TCL_OK regardless of any errors encountered during execution.
Note: Any errors encountered on the command-line, while launching the command, will be returned. Only errors occurring inside the command will be trapped.
-verbose - (Optional) Temporarily override any message limits and return all messages from this command.
Note: Message limits can be defined with the set_msg_config command.

<hw_sio_links> - (Required) Specify one or more hw_sio_link objects to remove. The hw_sio_link must be specified as an object as returned by the create_hw_sio_link or get_hw_sio_links commands.


The following example removes the specified communication link on the IBERT debug core:

remove_hw_sio_link [get_hw_sio_links -filter {DESCRIPTION == "Link2"}]
