This Answer Record identifies starting points when debugging simulation link training related issues to PCI Express.
NOTE: This Answer Record is part of the Xilinx Solution Center for PCI Express (Xilinx Answer 34536) The Xilinx Solution Center for PCI Express is available to address all questions related to PCIe. Whether you are starting a new design with PCIe or troubleshooting a problem, use the Solution Center for PCIe to guide you to the right information.


The various timeouts contained within the LTSSM states are reduced for simulation. This allows for a shorter link training time and speeds up overall simulation. When using third party BFMs, it is often helpful to know these values. The timeout values are documented in the PCI Express User Guides. For links to these guides, see(Xilinx Answer 35920) />
