Designing with Serial Transceivers


2 days - 14 hours


  • After completing this training, you will have the necessary skills to:
    • 1 - Describe and utilize the ports and attributes of the serial transceivers in the UltraScale FPGAs
    • 2 - Use the UltraScale FPGAs Transceivers Wizard to instantiate GT primitives in a design
    • 3 - Effectively utilize the coding, pre-emphasis and linear equalization features of the gigabit transceivers
    • 4 - Use the IBERT design to verify transceiver links on real hardware
    • 5 - Access reference material and debugging tools for your designs


  • Verilog or VHDL experience
  • Basic knowledge of FPGA architecture and Vivado™ implementation tools is helpful
  • Familiarity with serial I/O basics and high-speed serial I/O standards is also helpful

Concerned public

  • Technicians and Engineers in Digital Electronics
  • All our training courses are given at a distance and are accessible to people with reduced mobility.
