4.1.4. Installing the Intel® Quartus® Prime Software

You need to install the Intel® Quartus® Prime software that can support the silicon on the development kit. The recommended version can be found in the README.txt file under examples\board_test_system directory. If you choose to install individual files, Intel Agilex® 7 Device Support is required to install.

The BTS communicates over JTAG to a test design running in the FPGA. The BTS shares the JTAG with other applications like the Nios® II JTAG Debug Module and the Signal Tap Logic Analyzer. Make sure to close other applications before you use the BTS, because the BTS is designed based on the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.

The BTS relies on the Intel® Quartus® Prime software's specific library. Before running the BTS, open the Intel® Quartus® Prime software to automatically set the environment variable QUARTUS_ROOTDIR. You can also change it through Environment Variables in System Properties in Windows*. The BTS uses this environment variable to locate the Intel® Quartus® Prime library.
