Create an FPGA configuration file for the host computer.
Before you begin, compile your custom
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.
Navigate to the <Common Data>\FPGA directory and create a copy
of an existing default configuration file.
Modify the FPGA configuration file using XML tags.
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
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.
