Configuring the FPGA

Before configuring the FPGA, ensure the following tasks are completed:

  • The Intel® FPGA Download Cable II driver is installed on the host computer
  • The Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit is powered on
  • No other running application is using the JTAG chain

To configure the FPGA, follow these steps:

  1. In the Intel® Quartus® Prime Programmer, select Hardware Setup>USB-Blaster II [USB-1].
  2. Click Auto Detect to display the devices in the JTAG chain. Select 10M08SA for device 1 and 10CX220Y for device 2.
  3. Right click 10CX220Y and select Change File. Choose the appropriate SRAM Object File (.sof) from the /quartus directory. Click Open.
  4. Turn on Program/Configure for the .sof file.
  5. Click Start to program the image into the FPGA.
