3.5. Loading the Design in the Transceiver Toolkit

If the FPGA is already programmed with the project when loading, the Transceiver Toolkit automatically links the design to the target hardware in the toolkit. The toolkit automatically discovers links between transmitter and receiver of the same channel.

Before loading the device, ensure that you connect the hardware. The device and JTAG connections appear in the Device and Connections folders of the System Explorer pane.

To load the design into the Transceiver Toolkit:

  1. In the System Console, click File > Load Design.
  2. Select the .sof programming file for the transceiver design.
After loading the project, the designs and design instances folders in the System Explorer pane display information about the design, such as the design name and the blocks in the design that can communicate to the System Console.
