1.7. Hardware Installation

The development kits include the integrated Intel® FPGA Download Cable circuitry for FPGA programming. However, for the host computer and development board to communicate, you must install the Intel® FPGA Download Cable on the host computer.
  1. Power down computer #1 and plug the development board into the PCI Express slot. For an x1 operation, use a PCI Express lane converter.
  2. Install the Intel® FPGA Download Cable on the host computer.
  3. Program the FPGA with the reference design using the Intel® Quartus® Prime software on computer #2.
    • If you are using the on-board/integrated Intel® FPGA Download Cable, use a USB cable.
    • Otherwise, use the Intel® FPGA Download Cable connection between computer #2 and the development board on computer #1.
  4. Connect one end of the USB cable to the USB port on the development board.
  5. Connect the other end of the cable to the USB port on the computer running the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, i.e. computer #2.

    To download the Intel® FPGA Download Cable driver, go to the Intel support site at Cable and Adapter Drivers Information.

    For installation instructions, go to USB-Blaster Driver Installation for Windows.
