4.2. Running the Board Test System

To run the Board Test System (BTS), navigate to the <package dir>\examples\board_test_system directory and double click BoardTestSystem.bat.

A GUI appears, displaying the application tab that corresponds to the design running in the FPGA. The development board’s flash memory ships preconfigured with the design that corresponds to the GPIO tab.

Note: The BTS relies on the Quartus® Prime software's specific library. Before running the BTS, open the Quartus® Prime software. It sets the environment variable $QUARTUS_ROOTDIR automatically. The Board Test System uses this environment variable to locate the Quartus® Prime library.

The BTS picks up the Quartus® Prime Programmer to configure the FPGA device on your development kit. Make sure the Quartus® Prime software you are using is the version supporting the FPGA silicon on the board.
