The quick start instructions provide a step-by-step procedure for generating an Aurora 64B/66B core, implementing the core in hardware using the accompanying example design, and simulating the core with the provided demonstration test bench ( demo_tb ). For detailed information about the example design provided with the Aurora 64B/66B core, see Detailed Example Design .
The quick start example design consists of these components:
• An instance of the Aurora 64B/66B core generated using the default parameters
° Full-duplex with a single GTX transceiver
° AXI4-Stream user interface
• A top-level example design ( <user_component name>_exdes ) with an XDC file to configure the core for simple data transfer operation
• A demonstration test bench to simulate two instances of the example design
The Aurora 64B/66B example design has been tested with the Vivado Design Suite for synthesis and the Mentor Graphics Questa Simulator (QuestaSim) for simulation.
