NameAN 676: Using the Transceiver Reconfiguration Controller for Dynamic Reconfiguration in Arria V and Cyclone V Devices - Arria V
DescriptionArria V GX Dynamic Reconfiguration Design Example The design example uses the Reconfiguration Controller to dynamically reconfigure a Native PHY IP to support multiple data rates of 2500 Mbps and 5000 Mbps by switching the external PLL connected to the transceiver channel. The design example uses a 5AGXFB3H4F35C5 device and is compiled with the Quartus® II 12.1sp1 software. The reconfiguration commands are controlled through the System Console tool that ships with the Quartus II software. This design example demonstrates the following reconfiguration methods: • Streamer-based reconfiguration • The MIF streaming reconfiguration is used to switch the TX PLLs that are connected to the transceiver channel. • Register-based reconfiguration • Changing VOD setting • Triggering DCD calibration manually The design example consists of the following modules. The numbers refer to the position of the modules in the following figure. The system-level diagram shows how the different modules interact in the reconfi‐ guration design example. 1. Arria V GX Transceiver Native PHY IP 2. Transceiver Reconfiguration Controller 3. Qsys system 4. PHY Reset Controller 5. CMU PLL – Transceiver PLL 6. Fractional PLL (fPLL) – Altera fPLL 7. ROM containing the MIF for reconfiguration 8. In-System Sources and Probes (ISSP) The design example also contains a PRBS data generator and checker. The data generator generates a PRBS15 data pattern. The data checker verifies the PRBS15 data received.
