5.1. Connecting to the Board Update Portal Web Page

This section provides instructions to connect to the Board Update Portal web page. Before you proceed, ensure that you have the following:

  • A PC with a connection to a working Ethernet port on a DHCP enabled network.
  • A separate working Ethernet port connected to the same network for the board.
  • The Ethernet cable, power cables, and development board that are included in the kit.

To connect to the Board Update Portal web page, perform these steps:

  1. Install the latest Altera software tools, including the Quartus® Prime software, Nios® II processor and IP functions. If necessary, download the Quartus® Prime Lite Edition software.
  2. With the board powered down, set SW6.4 to the ON position.
  3. Attach the Ethernet cable from the board to your LAN.
  4. Power up the board. The board connects to the LAN's gateway router and obtains an IP address. The LCD on the board displays the IP address.
  5. Launch a web browser on the PC that is connected to the same network, and enter the IP address from the LCD into the browser address bar. The Board Update Portal web page appears in the browser.

You can click Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit on the Board Update Portal web page to access the kit’s home page for documentation updates and additional new designs.

You can also navigate directly to the Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit page of the Intel® website to determine if you have the latest kit software.
