ChipScope IBERT - "Is it possible to use IBERT with MGTs on separate boards?"


Is it possible to use IBERT with MGTs on separate boards?


Yes, this is possible. You will need two cables connected to one computer or two computers. You can then open two versions of Analyzer that connect on different TCP/IP ports. To do this, change the value of "Server Port Setting" (default: 50001) in one of the Analyzer windows. You can then connect to each board independently.

NOTE: If you are using ChipScope 8.1 or earlier, you will need to launch the cs_server manually via the command line prior to connecting to the non-default port. To do this, open a command prompt and navigate to "Chipscop_install_directory\bin\nt" and type the following:

cs_server -port xxxxx

Where xxxxx is the TCP/IP port specified in the "Server Port Settings" of the second window.
