13.x - Virtex-6 GTH and Kintex-7 GTX - IBERT GUI Does Not Start


The answer record provides a workaround for the IBERT GUI when it does not start on a Virtex-6 GTH board or Kintex-7 GTX board.


If you are using IBERT on a Virtex-6 or a Kintex-7 GTX board, there is a known issue where the IBERT GUI might not start.

This is caused by using a configuration cable speed that is too fast for IBERT to work properly.

To fix this issue, change the cable speed to a speed of 6 MHz or less.

High cable speeds will not work with IBERT and Virtex-6 GTH or Kintex-7 GTX.

You can change the cable speed in the JTAG Chain > Xilinx Platform USB cable menu in ChipScope Analyzer.
