6.1.5. Bringing up the Hardware

Before testing the design in hardware, you must install the CvP driver in your DUT system. You can also install RW Utilities or other system verification tools to monitor the link status of the Endpoint and to observe traffic on the link. You can download these utilities for free from many web sites.
Note: You can develop your own custom CvP driver for Linux using the sample Linux driver source code provided by Intel.
The test setup includes the following components:
  1. Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA Development Kit
  2. Intel® FPGA Download Cable
  3. A DUT PC with PCI Express slot to plug in the FPGA Development Kit
  4. A PC running the Intel® Quartus® Prime software to program the periphery image, .sof or .pof file.
