3.1. Setting up the Development Kit
To prepare and apply power to the board, perform the following steps:
- Standard PCIe* -compliant system:
In this mode, plug the board into an available PCIe* slot and connect the standard 2x4 PCIe* auxiliary power available from the PC's ATX power supply to the mating connector on the board (J12), and remove any power supply connected to J13. The PCIe* slot together with the PCIe* power is required to power the entire board with power up to 75 Watt. If ATX power is not connected, ensure that your PCIe* system can provide up to 75 Watt of power through the PCIe* slot alone. The power switch S14 is ignored when the board is used in the PCIe* .
- Stand-alone evaluation board:
In this mode, plug the included power supply into the power adapter connector (J13) and the AC power cord of the power supply into a power outlet. Remove any ATX power supply that is connected from the 2x4 power connector (J12). The power switch S14 will power ON/OFF the board.
