Creating a Custom FPGA Configuration File

Last Modified: November 16, 2020

Create an FPGA configuration file for the host computer.

Before you begin, compile your custom bitfile.

For each FPGA bitfile, VeriStand requires an FPGA configuration file. The FPGA configuration file is an XML file that the host computer uses to determine the DMA FIFO properties and how the FPGA device appears in System Explorer.

  1. Navigate to the <Common Data>\FPGA directory and create a copy of an existing default configuration file.
  2. Modify the FPGA configuration file using XML tags.
  3. Save the file to the <Common Data>\FPGA directory using the .fpgaconfig file extension.
    If you choose to save the file in a different directory, save a copy of the NI VeriStand FPGA DMA.xsd file, NI VeriStand FPGA DMA.xsl file, and the associated .lvbitx file in the same directory. If these files are not saved in the same directory, VeriStand cannot load the FPGA configuration file.

    FPGA configuration files must have at least one space in the file name.
