6. Board Test System

This development kit includes a design example and an application called the Board Test System (BTS) to test the functionality of the Intel® Arria® 10 GX Transceiver Signal Integrity Development Board.

The application provides an easy-to-use interface to alter functional settings and observe the results. You can use the application to test board components, modify functional parameters, observe performance, and measure power usage. While using the application, you reconfigure the FPGA several times with test designs specific to the functionality you are testing. The application is also useful as a reference for designing systems.

The Board Test System communicates over the JTAG bus to a test design running in the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA device. The figure below shows the initial Graphic User Interface (GUI) for a board that is in the factory configuration.
