Summary The overall project is to create a system that automatically tests the internal components of Xilinx Virtex 4 LX200 device, while the device is running in a thermal chamber at temperatures that stresses the device ratings. The purpose of test is to detect the above or below normal temperatures that the device operates reliably to determine if the part can be up-screened. Also the overall system design is to provide a generic test-bed to be used on screening future parts within the same family. The overall system components are: the Unit Under Test (UUT), an Interface Adapter Board and a PC hosting the software that controls the test process. This project report is specifically about the circuit design that provides for the logic implementation in VHDL (Very High Speed Hardware Description Language) that is programmed in the UUT. By itself, this project report is a standalone circuit design that follows the hardware and software interface requirements. The programmed device then will provide for an asynchronous serial interface, test execution control and feedback test results for different internal components of the UUT. The end product of the design implementation is a program file that will be loaded in the UUT. The VHDL code, programming file and supporting files are included with this report.
