1.5. Compiling and Testing the Design

To compile and run a demonstration test on the hardware example design, follow these steps:
  1. Ensure hardware example design generation is complete.
  2. Launch the Quartus® Prime software and open <project directory>/quartus/a10_dp_demo.qpf.
  3. Click Processing > Start Compilation.
  4. After successful compilation, the Quartus® Prime software generates a .sof file in your specified directory.
  5. Connect the DisplayPort RX connector on the Bitec daughter card to an external video source, such as the graphics card on a PC.
  6. Connect the DisplayPort TX connector on the Bitec daughter card to a video analyzer or a DisplayPort sink device, such as a PC monitor.
  7. Ensure all switches on the development board are in default position.
  8. Configure the selected Arria® 10 device on the development board using the generated .sof file (Tools > Programmer ).
  9. The DisplayPort sink device displays the video generated from the video source.
