7.4. Launching a Toolkit in System Console
System Console provides the hardware debugging infrastructure to run the Available System Debugging Toolkits. When you load a design in the Toolkit Explorer that includes debug-enabled Intel® FPGA IP, the Toolkit Explorer automatically lists the toolkits that are available for the IP in the design.
To launch a toolkit in System Console, follow these steps:
- Create an Intel® Quartus® Prime project that includes debug-enabled Intel® FPGA IP. Refer to IP Cores that Interact with System Console.
- On the Compilation Dashboard, double-click Assembler to generate a .sof programming file for the design. Any prerequisite Compiler stages run automatically before the Assembler starts.
- Launch System Console, as Starting System Console describes.

- In the Toolkit Explorer, click Load Design, and then select the .sof file that you create in step 2. When you load the design, Toolkit Explorer displays the debug-enabled IP instances.
- Select a debug-enabled IP instance. The Details pane displays the channels that can launch toolkits.
- To launch a toolkit, select the toolkit under Details. For toolkits with channels, you can also multi-select one or more channels from the Details pane. Then, click Open Toolkit. The toolkit opens in the Main View, and the Collections pane displays a collection of any channels that you select.
- To save a collection for future use, right-click the collection, and then click Export Collection. To load a collection, right-click in the Collections pane, and then click Import Collection. By default, System Console creates a collection when you launch a toolkit.
