3.1. Applying Power to the Board

This development kit ships with its board switches preconfigured to support the design examples in the kit.

If you suspect that your board might not be currently configured with the default settings, follow the instructions in the Default Switch and Jumper Settings section of this chapter.

  1. The development board ships with design examples stored in the flash memory device. To load the design stored in the factory portion of flash memory, verify SW6.4 is set to ON. This is the default setting.
  2. Connect the supplied power supply to an outlet and the DC Power Jack (J13) on the FPGA board.
    Use only the supplied power supply. Power regulation circuitry on the board can be damaged by power supplies with greater voltage.
  3. Set the power switch (SW1) to the on position.
When the board powers up, the parallel flash loader (PFL) on the MAX V reads a design from flash memory and configures the FPGA. When the configuration is complete, green LEDs illuminate signaling the device configured successfully. If the configuration fails, the red LED illuminates.
