ChipScope IBERT, Kintex-7 - Why am I unable to set a 0.5 Gb/s line rate in IBERT for a Kintex-7 device?

Description

The GTX Wizard and data sheets show a minimum line rate of 0.5 Gb/s for the Kintex-7 GTX FPGAs. Nonetheless, IBERT does not allow line rates this low; instead, it is ~.6 Gb/s.

Solution

This is a known problem with the Wizard and has been fixed in 14.3.
