Arria V Development Kit... Has *anybody* ever got the "Board Test System" to work, being that it comes default looking for a "5AGGXFB3" FPGA. Seems that the actual DevKit comes with a "5AGXFB3" (only one "G"). Makes it hard to use.

Hello,

 

Welcome to INTEL forum. Could you help verify the Switch and Jumper Settings are in default factory switch settings for the Intel Arria V GX FPGA Development Kit and try the BTS test again.

You can refer here https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/ug/ug_avgx_fpga_dev_kit.pdf...

No, they do not match the settings in that ug_... since it is not the board that I have. But they *do* match the ug for my board, shown in the image above as P/N 6XX-44099R, and on the box as DIK-START-5AGXB3N-0S. The ug I used is "Arria V GX Starter Kit", UG-01117-1.2, Feb 2013, page 18, Figure 4-1. But that is only a secondary point. My board does not *have* a 5AGGXFB3, and I can not find that part # anywhere on the internet. If it is actually looking for that ID it will have to keep looking for a long time. There may also be other problems, but this should probably be cleared up first.

 

I also had to install Quartus V15.0 so I could get some work done, since the link for V12.1sp1 was defunct for so long. I have renamed that directory so that it can no longer be found and changed the Environment Variable to point back to V12.1sp1. (although I can't imagine why a pre-compiled program would need a particular version of the development software to work). Still doesn't work. Possibly because it doesn't change a 5AGX into a 5AGGX. Anybody who *has* gotten this to work must have that elusive 5AGGX. Where can I get one?

Hi Sir

 

May I know, are you using Arria V GX FPGA Starter Kit board for the BTS test?
