4.1.5. Run BTS GUI

With the power to the board off, follow these steps:
  1. Connect the USB cable to your PC and the board.
  2. Ensure the development board switches and jumpers are set according to your preferences. For more information, refer to the Factory Default Switch Settings section.
  3. Check the external modules' status: QSFP/QSFPDD/DDR4 DIMM.
  4. Turn on the board power switch.
    Note: To ensure operating stability, keep the USB cable connected and the board powered on when running the demonstration application. The BTS cannot run correctly unless the USB cable is attached and the board is powered on.
Navigate to the <package dir>\examples\board_test_system directory. The BTS release folder includes the following files.

You can run BTS GUI easily with the following scripts.

  1. On Windows system, double click the .bat files to run BTS, Clock Controller, or Power Monitor GUI.

Note: The .bat or shell script checks the Java environment settings, copy necessary files, and give some prompts if the environment is not set up correctly.

The GUI displays the application tab corresponding to the design running in the FPGA. If the design loaded in the FPGA is not supported by the BTS GUI, you receive a message prompting you to configure your board with a valid BTS design. For more information, refer to the Configure Menu section.
