2.7.3. Setting Up Terminal Connection

To set up the terminal connection on the Cyclone® V SoC Development Kit for use with the Windows version of the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™, specify the USB virtual COM port settings.
  1. Connect the board to your development machine via the micro-USB port that is closest to the power supply connector on the board.
  2. Connect the board to the power supply and power it up.
  3. Download the Virtual COM port (VCP) driver from the VCP driver download page on the Future Technology Devices International (FTDI) Ltd. website.
  4. Determine the COM port in use.
    1. From the Windows Start menu, click Control Panel > Hardware and Sound.
    2. Under Devices and Printers, click Device Manager.
    3. In the Device Manager window, under Ports, click USB Serial Port (COM<X>).
  5. Connect either the Tera Term or PuTTY open-source terminal emulator to the COM port that the FDTI driver creates.
  6. Set the port settings to 115200, 8N1, with parity and control flow set to none.
  7. For Tera Term, select Setup > Terminal, and then change Code Page to 1250.
  8. Without powering down, restart the board.
