to use tool to evaluate Gigabit Ethernet signal quality
and performance of the Am79761 GigaPHY-SD de-
vice. The board is a self-contained evaluation unit. In
its simplest form, the switches on the board can be
used to set the transmit data and control lines while
monitoring receive data and status lines with LEDs. In
addition to the switch settings, a pre-programmed PAL
can generate simple word patterns useful for checking
the transmit data.
necting a pattern generator (10-bits at 125 MHz) to
pods on the board in order to generate transmit data
and control lines. A logic analyzer can be connected to
pods on the board to monitor receive data and status
signals. With this setup, 8B/10B data can be sent to the
GigaPHY-SD transmitter to generate Gigabit data
which can be monitored on the logic analyzer.
volts to the board with a shutdown switch used to turn
off power to all components while changing switch and
directly if the cable uses SMA connectors.
