Abstract [en]

Test Tools are very important in the design of a system. They generally simulate a working environment, only at a higher

speed, or with less frequently occurring test cases. In the verification of protocols based on the Fibre Channel physical layer,

this becomes a necessity, as errors can be non-existent or very unusual in normal operating environments. Most systems need

to be able to handle these unexpected events nonetheless. Therefore, there is a need for a method of introducing these errors

in a controlled way.

A bit error generation and logging tool for two proprietary protocols based on the Fibre Channel physical layer has been

developed. The hardware platform consists mainly of a Virtex II Pro FPGA with accompanying I/O support. Control of the

hardware is handled by a graphical user interface residing on a PC. Communication between the hardware and the PC is

handled with a UART. The final implementation can handle four parallel one way links, or two full duplex links,

independently. This report describes the implementation and the necessary theoretical background for this.
