2.3. Inspect the Board

To inspect the board, perform the following steps:

  1. Place the board on an anti-static surface and inspect it to ensure that it has not been damaged during shipment. Without proper anti-static handling, you can damage the board.
  2. Verify that all components are on the board and appear intact.
  3. The Intel® Arria® 10 GX transceiver signal integrity development kit shall have a Fan/Heatsink assembly installed on the top of the FPGA device. If this assembly needs to be installed, refer to the instructions on the documentation package and reference assembly drawing.
