4.1.4. Install Intel® Quartus® Prime Software
You must install the Intel® Quartus® Prime software to support the silicon on the development kit. The recommended version is located in the README.txt file in the examples\board_test_system directory. If you choose to install individual files, you must install Intel Agilex® 7 Device Support.
The BTS communicates over JTAG to a test design running in the FPGA. The BTS and Power Monitor share the JTAG with other applications such as the Nios® II JTAG Debug Module and the Signal Tap Logic Analyzer. Intel recommends closing other applications before using BTS, as the GUI is designed based on the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.
The BTS relies on the Intel® Quartus® Prime software's specific library. Before running the BTS, open the Intel® Quartus® Prime software to automatically set the environment variable QUARTUS_ROOTDIR. You can also change it through Window's Environment Variables in System Properties. The BTS uses this environment variable to locate the Intel® Quartus® Prime library.
