LatticeECP2M SERDES Demo

Click here to download a SERDES demo package for use with this board. This demo illustrates the SERDES/PCS abilities of the LatticeECP2M. It does this by embedding a simple pseudo-random pattern into an 8b/10b encoded PCS payload, then looping back the payload, and checking it for correctness. Source & programming files are included with the demo package. Further documentation is provided in tech note: TN1153.
