Step 8: Programming the Board

Before you begin:
  1. Connect the power supply to the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA development board.
  2. Connect the USB Blaster cable between your PC USB port and the USB Blaster port on the development board.
Note: This tutorial utilizes the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA development board on the bench, outside of the PCIe* slot in your host machine.
To program the design on the board:
  1. In the Intel® Quartus® Prime software, click Tools > Programmer.
  2. In the Programmer, click Hardware Setup and select USB-Blaster.
  3. Click Auto Detect and select the device, 10AT115S2F45 .
  4. Click OK. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software detects and updates the Programmer with the three FPGA chips on the board.
  5. Select the 10AT115S2F45 device, click Change File and load the blinking_led.sof file.
  6. Enable Program/Configure for blinking_led.sof file.
  7. Click Start and wait for the progress bar to reach 100%.
  8. To program the PR persona that you want to debug, right-click the blinking_led.sof file in the Programmer, and click Add PR Programming File.
  9. Select the blinking_led_slow.pr_partition.rbf file.
  10. Disable Program/Configure for blinking_led.sof file.
  11. Enable Program/Configure for blinking_led_slow.pr_partition.rbf file and click Start.
  12. On the board, verify that two of the LEDs are blinking slower than the other two.
