Configuring and Installing the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit board

To use the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit with the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ , you must install the DDR4 memory module, configure certain DIP switches on the board, and add the board to your host system.

  1. Install the DDR4 memory module as follows:
    1. Locate the heat sink on the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit board:

    2. Remove the heat sink from the board by squeezing and pushing out the two pins from the back of the board.

    3. Locate the HiLo connector that was previously hidden by the heat sink

    4. Plug the DDR4 memory module into the HiLo connector.

      The DD4 memory module provided with the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit looks like the following image:

      After you have plugged in the DDR4 memory module, your Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit card should look like the following image:

    5. Reinstall the heat sink on the board. Make sure that the two fans are visible.
  2. Configure the following DIP switches: SW3, SW4, SW5, and SW6:
    1. Locate the SW3 DIP switch on the front of the board:

    2. Ensure that the SW3 DIP switch is configured as follows:

    3. Locate the SW4, SW5, and SW6 DIP switches on the back of the board:

    4. Ensure that the SW4, SW5, and SW6 DIP switches are configured as follows:

  3. Add the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit card to your host system:
    1. Plug the card into a PCIe Gen3 x8 slot on your host system.

    2. Connect the 6-pin power cable to the card.

    3. Connect the card to your host USB subsystem using the micro USB cable.

After you have configured and installed the hardware, you must initialize the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit for use with OpenCL* .
