4. Board Test System
The Intel Agilex® 7 FPGA I-Series Transceiver-SoC Development Kit includes design examples and the board test system (BTS) GUI to test the functionality of this board. The BTS provides an easy-to-use interface to alter functional settings and observe results. You can use the BTS to test board components, modify functional parameters, observe performance, and measure power usage.
While using the BTS, you reconfigure the FPGA several times with test designs specific to the functionality that you are testing. The BTS is also useful as a reference for designing systems. The BTS communicates over the JTAG bus to a test design running in the Intel Agilex® 7 FPGA I-Series.
The following figure shows the graphical user interface (GUI) of a board that is in factory configuration.
