2.1. Setting up the baseboard

The following items are supplied:

Note

For normal standalone operation, it is not necessary to change any of the default switch settings on the baseboard. See Baseboard configuration switches.

Before fitting any Logic Tiles, you should test that the system boots normally.

To set up the PB-A8 as a standalone development system:

  1. If you are using one or more expansion Logic Tiles, open the enclosure and stack the tiles on the tile expansion connectors on the baseboard. See Appendix D RealView Logic Tile Expansion and the user guide for your Logic Tile for details.

  2. If you are using one or more memory expansion boards, open the enclosure and stack the boards on the PISMO™ connector on the baseboard. See Appendix C Memory Expansion Boards for details.

  3. If you are using an external display:

    • for analog VGA displays, connect a DVI-A cable from the display to the DVI connector on the back panel of the enclosure

    • for digital CLCD displays, connect a DVI-D cable from the display to the DVI connector on the back panel of the enclosure.

    Note

    A DVI-I cable can be used to connect a digital or analog display.

  4. If you are using a debugger, connect to the JTAG connector (JTAG-ICE) on the rear panel of the enclosure. See Figure 3.3 for the location of the JTAG connector, and JTAG debugger and USB config support for information on debug support.

  5. Apply power to the ATX enclosure, switch on the mains switch on the rear panel. See Figure 3.3 for the location of the mains switch. Press the power button on the front panel. The power indicator will light. See Figure 3.2 for the location of the power button and indicator.

  6. If you are using the supplied Boot Monitor software to select and run an application, see Appendix E Boot Monitor and platform library.
