Partial Reconfiguration of RocketIO Pre-emphasis and Differential Swing Control Attributes

This application note describes a pre-engineered solution for Virtex-II Pro devices using the IBM PowerPCTM 405 core to perform a partial reconfiguration of the RocketIOTM Multi-gigabit Transceivers (MGTs) pre-emphasis and differential swing control attributes. This solution is ideal for applications where these attributes must be modified to optimize the MGT signal transmission for various system environments while leaving the rest of the FPGA design unchanged. The hardware and software elements of this solution can be easily integrated into any Virtex-II Pro design. The associated reference design supports the following devices: XC2VP4, XC2VP7, XC2VP20, and XC2VP50.
