Hi,I'm having trouble getting a working Arria10 transceiver configuration. Due to a kind of design flaw on my board I have a 240 MHz reference clock and I need a 160 MHz reference clock. I'm trying to use fPLL to fPLL cascading. The setup is currently like this: input 240 MHz -> cascading fPLL -> 160 MHz -> transceiver fPLL -> 2560 MHz serial transceiver clock The 160 MHz clock is also used for the CDR reference. I have an Avalon Memory Map to recalibrate the fPLLs (particularly the second one). However, when I talk to the first fPLL I always get back state 0x84 (from any subaddress). Does anyone have any experience with this kind of setup? I can provide more info and the project files if necessary. Advance thanks, Karol.
