Virtex-6 GTH Transceiver - Manually setting the tap values for the DFE

Description

This Answer Record contains the bit mappings for the DFE taps in the Virtex-6 GTH Transceiver.

Solution

The DFE in the Virtex-6 GTHTransceiver has three taps.The table below contains the bit mappings for these taps; the bits that enable overriding the auto-calibration, and the equalization gain settings.


DFE Impact

Attribute Location:

Tap 1 Value [4:0]:

RX_AEQ_VAL1_LANE<n>[4:0]

Tap 1 Override:

RX_AEQ_VAL1_LANE<n> [5]

Tap 2 Value [4:0]:

RX_AEQ_VAL1_LANE<n> [10:6]

Tap 2 Override:

RX_AEQ_VAL1_LANE<n> [11]

Tap 3 Value [4]:

RX_AEQ_VAL0_LANE<n> [0]

Tap 3 Value [3:0]:

RX_AEQ_VAL1_LANE<n> [15:12]

Tap 3 Override:

RX_AEQ_VAL0_LANE<n>[1]

DFE Gain:

RX_AEQ_VAL0_LANE<n>[5:4]

AGC Gain:

RX_AEQ_VAL0_LANE<n>[3:2]

NOTE: Xilinx is only providing these bit locations for users who are interested in setting the feedback taps themselves.Performance whilemanually modifying these bits depends on use model.For supported DFE use cases, see the Virtex-6 GTH Transceiver User's Guide (UG371).
