          Lab 1: Constructing the PCIe Core – This lab familiarizes you with the necessary flow for generating a Xilinx Integrated PCI Express Endpoint core from the IP catalog. You will select appropriate parameters and create the PCIe core used throughout the labs.

          Lab 2: Downstream Port Model Simulation – This lab demonstrates how timing and behavior of a typical link negotiation using the Vivado simulator. You will observe and capture the effects of link training and write packets to the endpoint application for later use.

          Lab 3: Pseudo-Transactional Modeling – This lab illustrates pseudo-transactional modeling, which provides various packets to the user design without the need to simulate the PCIe cores themselves.

          Lab 4: Design Implementation – This lab familiarizes you with all the necessary steps and recommended settings to turn the HDL source to a bitstream.

          Lab 5: Debugging the PCIe Core with the Vivado Logic Analyzer – This lab illustrates how to use the Vivado logic analyzer to monitor the behavior of the core and the endpoint application for proper operation.
