Is there anyway to configure a QorIQ processor such as the T2081 to do loop back of the TX signals onto the RX signals? I have an FPGA on one endpoint that can run PCIe tests but only if the other end is looping back the signals. On the FPGA it is called serial loopback mode, anything similar on the CPU side? 

Thanks,

Vinny

Hello viniamin tokarchuk,

To test/Validate PCIe Lanes, you could use a loopback device to connect PCIe Tx port to its Rx port.

Please read LTSSM state status register (PEX_CSR0) to check the status of link training, in case of successful PCI Express link training the register value will be 010001b - L0 state.

For details, please refer to CSR0[LTSSM_SC] in T2080 Reference Manual.


Have a great day,
TIC
