The reference design requires the following hardware:
  • The Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit.
  • A computer running Windows driver with an x4/x1 PCI Express slot for the Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX FPGA development board. The software application and hardware are installed on this computer, referred to as computer #1 in this document.
  • A computer with the Intel® Quartus® Prime software for downloading FPGA programming files to the Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX FPGA development board. This computer is referred to as computer #2 in this document.
  • A USB cable or other Intel download cable.
  • A PCI Express x4 to x1 lane converter for x1 operation.
Note: Intel provides x4 and x1 design examples for this reference design. If the PCI Express slot on your motherboard has one lane but you want to use the x4 design example, you must use a lane converter to transfer data from the higher lanes to the lower available lane.
