2.1.5. Compiling and Configuring the Design Example in Hardware

To compile the hardware design example and configure it on your Intel® Agilex™ device, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure hardware design example generation is complete.
  2. In the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software, open the Intel® Quartus® Prime project <design_example_dir>/hardware_test_design/alt_ehip3.qpf.
  3. On the Processing menu, click Start Compilation.
  4. After successful compilation, a .sof file is available in <design_example_dir>/hardware_test_design/output_files directory. Follow these steps to program the hardware design example 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:
      • U37 (Si5338), CLK1—100MHz
      • For SyncE-enabled design example:
        • LMK05028, IN0—Set to the frequency of o_clk_rec_div66 signal.
          • For 10G variant, set to 156.25MHz.
          • For 25G variant, set to 390.625MHz.
        • LMK05028, OUT2—Set to the PHY Reference Frequency specified in the PMA Options 10GE/25GE settings under 10GE/25GE tab.
      • For non SyncE-enabled design example:
        • Y2 (Si549) - Set to the PHY Reference Frequency of the design.
          • For 10GE/25GE variant, select 10GE/25GE tab and locate the PMA Options 10GE/25GE setting.
          • For 100GE variant, select 100GE tab and locate the PMA Options 100GE setting.
        Note: For steps to configure Clock Controller application, refer to the Control on-board clock through Clock Controller GUI section of Intel Agilex F-Series Transceiver-SoC Development Kit User Guide.
    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 Pro Edition 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.
