1.6. Compiling and Configuring the Design Example in Hardware

Figure 9. Procedure
To compile and run a demonstration test on the hardware example design, follow these steps:
  1. Ensure hardware example design generation is complete.
  2. In the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software, open the Intel® Quartus® Prime project <design_example_installation_dir>/example_design/quartus/example_design.qpf>.
  3. On the Processing menu, click Start Compilation.
  4. After successful compilation, a .sof file is available in your specified directory. Follow these steps to program the hardware example design on the Intel® Agilex™ device:
    1. Connect Intel® Agilex™ F-Series Transceiver-SoC Development Kit to the host computer.
    2. Launch the Clock Control application, which is part of the development kit, and set new frequencies for the design example. Below is the frequency setting in the Clock Control application:
      • Si5338 (U37), CLK1- 100 MHz
      • Si5338 (U36), CLK2- 153.6 MHz
      • Si549 (Y2), OUT- Set to the value of pll_ref_clk 1 per your design requirement.
    3. On the Tools menu, click Programmer.
    4. In the Programmer, click Hardware Setup.
    5. Select a programming device.
    6. Select and add the Intel® Agilex™ F-Series Transceiver-SoC Development Kit to which your Intel® Quartus® Prime session can connect.
    7. Ensure that Mode is set to JTAG.
    8. Select the Intel® Agilex™ device and click Add Device. The Programmer displays a block diagram of the connections between the devices on your board.
    9. In the row with your .sof, check the box for the .sof.
    10. Check the box in the Program/Configure column.
    11. Click Start.
1 Not all frequencies can be derived by the Clock Control GUI application.
