iW-RainboW-G58D: Get started with Agilex 5 SoC FPGA(B32A) SOM Development Platform

Unpacking

Remove the Development Platform from box and place above the ESD free area. Use anti-static pad/mat with proper grounding to place the Development Platform. Also make sure that, below deliverables are received without any physical damage.

Development kit contains:

  • Agilex 5 SoC FPGA(B32A) SOM Development Platform
  • 12V, 5A Power Supply
  • Safety guidelines
  • USB Debug cable
  • Heatsink + Fan

Debug Port Setting

Connect Type-A end of USB cable to PC and Type-C end of USB cable to Development platform’s debug USB Type-C connector(J8) as shown below.

G58D-Debug connection

JTAG Connection

iW-RainboW-G58D Agilex 5 SoC FPGA(B32A) SOM Development platform support JTAG
interface for FPGA Programming and debugging. Use the USB Blaster to connect Carrier Board.
Ensure that Switch-3 on the carrier board is turned ON.

Example USB Blaster which is tested with this Platform is mentioned below.
USB Blaster-2
Part Number : PL-USB2-BLASTER from INTEL

Powering ON

Connect the Power supply plug to the Power connector (J2) of the Development platform as shown below and switch ON the power supply. Once power is applied to the Development platform, the power LED in the Development platform will glow as shown in the below image.

Agilex5-POWER connection

Warning:

  • Do not try to connect any other Power Supply other than supplied along with Agilex 5 SoC FPGA(B32A) SOM Development Platform.
  • Do not plug or remove the Agilex 5 SoC FPGA(B32A) SOM from carrier board with live power.
  • Contact iWave, if power LEDs are not glowing.

Test Environment setup

Once power is applied to the Development Platform as explained in the previous section,
boot messages being displayed in the debug terminal of the PC/Laptop which is connected
to the Development platform. Press any key in terminal immediately to see the command
prompt of the Boot loader or wait until OS boots. After OS boots, Login prompt being displayed
in the debug terminal. Enter username and password as “root” to get the Linux command
prompt as shown below.
