Altera Cyclone V Development Kit Jumper Postion

Honored Contributor II



I have a really fundamental question regarding the altera cyclone v development kit that I just couldn't find anywhere on the net or in the documentation: 

For the jumpers and switches on the board, which position indicates 0 and which 1? 

In particular the bootsel jumpers: 

Does left indicate 1 and right 0? Is this correct? 


Thanks for your help. 


Best regards,

Document "ug_cv_soc_dev_kit.pdf" in conjunction with the schematic show the info. E.g. in section 3-2, page 12, there is a diagram and then some tables below it. You can see in the figure that BOOTSEL0 (J28) has a jumper around the two left pins, that is pin 1 and 2. And then below in table 3-4, says for BOOTSEL0, the default position is pins 1 and 2. That confirms that the left two pins are 1 and 2. 


Ok, now in the schematic on page 6 on the right side, you can see that pin 1 is pulled high and pin 3 is pulled low, and pin 2 is the signal to the FPGA. So, shorting pins 1 and 2 connects the signal to high. 


In summary, left indicates 1, right indicates 2.
