6.3.1. Configuring the FPGA Using Programmer

You can use the Quartus® Prime Programmer to configure the FPGA with your SRAM Object File (.sof).
Ensure the following:
  • The Quartus® Prime Programmer and the Intel® FPGA Download Cable II driver are installed on the host computer.
  • The micro-USB cable is connected to the FPGA development board.
  • Power to the board is on, and no other applications that use the JTAG chain are running.
  1. Start the Quartus® Prime Programmer.
  2. Click Auto Detect to display the devices in the JTAG chain.
  3. Click Change File and select the path to the desired .sof.
  4. Turn on the Program/Configure option for the added file.
  5. Click Start to download the selected file to the FPGA. Configuration is complete when the progress bar reaches 100%.
Using the Quartus® Prime Programmer to configure a device on the board causes other JTAG-based applications such as the Board Test System and the Power Monitor to lose their connection to the board. Restart those applications after configuration is complete.
