6. Debugging and Monitoring the Drive-On-Chip Design Example with System Console

  1. In the Intel Quartus Prime software, click Tools > System Debugging Tools > System Console.
  2. In Tcl console type toolkit_register toolkits/doc_toolkit/DOC.toolkit and press enter.
  3. In the Drive On A Chip Debug GUI area, click Launch.
  4. Check that the console display shows the correct FPGA and power board combination. For example for the Tandem Motion-Power 48 V Board project variant look for the following lines:
    Version = 4.0  Device Family = 2 Powerboard Id = 4 Design Id = 254 
    FPGA Board     : Cyclone V SX on Intel dev kit
    Power Board    : Intel Tandem 48V 
    You can right-click on the Drive On A Chip Debug GUI tab and select Detach to display the GUI in its own window. Close the window to reattach it to the System Console window.
A number of tabs are populated in the Drive-On-A-Chip Debug GUI, depending on the project variant. The tabs are grouped into two panes. Use the upper pane, starting with the Data Source tab to configure the design. Use the lower pane, starting with the General tab to start demonstrations and monitor the state of the design.
