This VI configures the retimers on the QSFP ports of the RTM-3661 to run at the given line rate. Each call affects a single lane, so the VI must be called in a loop to configure entire ports at a time. Communication is performed directly with the ATCA-3671 over the network and does not involve the FPGA device itself.


abc IP address specifies the IP address of the ATCA-3671 on the network.
FPGA_ID FPGA ID specifies the ATCA-3671 FPGA ID of the device which should be assigned the new bitstream.
lane lane specifies the corresponding FPGA ID of the lane to be configured.
abc line rate in GHz (string) specifies the line rate to be assigned to the retimer lane, specified as a floating point string, in GHz.
error_in error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality. If error in indicates an error, the node doesn't execute.
i32 bytes sent reports the number of bytes in the bistream that were transferred to the ATCA-3671.
u32 return status reports the error status returned by the ATCA-3671 firmware. Non-zero values indicate invalid parameters, even if the operation itself did not return an error in error out.
error_out error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.
