IBERT Design Assistant - Using Xilinx Development Boards with IBERT


The following answer record will point to board specific information that will be useful when using IBERT with specific development boards.

Note: This Answer Record is a part of the Xilinx ChipScope Solution Center (Xilinx Answer 45310). The Xilinx ChipScope Solution Center is available to address all questions related to the ChipScope tool. Whether you are starting a new design with the ChipScope tool or troubleshooting a problem, use the ChipScope Solution Center to guide you to the right information.


There are two pieces of information on the Xilinx website that will be useful when using a Xilinx development board with IBERT. The Getting Started User Guide available for each specific board will help familiarize yourself with the board and help set the board up properly for use. Each board will also have an IBERT reference design that will include abit file and a ChipScope Project File (CPJ) that can be opened in ChipScope Analyzer. TheIBERT reference design bit filewill already contain a working IBERT design and for some boards, will include a VIO core for controlling the SuperClock-2 Module.
