2.3.1 Setting up your MPS2+ platform

To set up your MPS2+ platform, follow these steps:

  1. Connect the 12V power adapter to the 12V DC power jack on the MPS2+ platform.
  2. Connect a USB lead from your computer to the USB 2.0 port on the MPS2+ platform. Your computer should recognize the MPS2+ platform as an external USB drive, named V2M_MPS2.


    Optionally, you can use the supplied RS232 to USB converter to connect an RS232 connector to the UART General Purpose connector. This connector allows for terminal access to the self-test program. If you want to run the self-test program, see the ARM® Cortex®-M3 DesignStart™ Eval FPGA User Guide.
