2.7.1. Writing an SD Card Image onto the Micro SD Flash Card
The SD card image linux_sd_card_image.tgz is included in the Cyclone V SoC Development Kit Reference Platform, available with the SDK.
You must have administrator privileges.
- Extract the files from the %INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT%\board\c5soc\linux_sd_card_image.tgz archive.
You can use tools such as 7zip or WinZip to extract the SD card image file from the .tgz archive.Note: To locate the directory, open a Windows command prompt and then type echo %INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT% at the command prompt.
- Download the Win32 Disk Imager from the SourceForge website.
- Unzip the Win32 Disk Imager and the SD card image to a directory that you own.
- Insert the micro SD card into the card reader and connect it to your PC.
- Launch the Win32 Disk Imager. In the dialog box, under Image File, browse to the SD card image file.
- From the Device pull-down menu, select the destination drive of the micro SD card.
Warning: Specifying the wrong device name might cause the SD card image to overwrite all existing data.
- Click Write.
- After you write the image onto the micro SD flash card, insert the card into the micro SD card slot on the Cyclone V SoC Development Kit.
- Power up the board.
If the LEDs on the FPGA flash in a counter pattern, the image is written onto the micro SD card successfully. A section of OpenCL logic on the FPGA drives these LEDs.
