Configure Command-Line Session for Intel SoC Device

Obtain the IP address of your Intel® SoC device, and verify serial port communication to your Intel SoC device, by using a command-line session with the Intel SoC device.

You can:

If you have multiple Intel SoC devices connected to your development computer, disconnect those you are not using.

Identify COM Port

Determine the COM port number assigned to the USB UART connection of the Intel SoC device by the development computer.

  1. In Windows®, open Devices and Printers.

  2. Locate the USB device that connects to the Intel SoC platform, such as FT232R USB UART.

  3. Open FT232R USB UART. To see the COM port number of the USB Serial Port, select the Hardware tab.

Open Serial Connection

Open a serial connection to the Intel SoC device using a terminal software, such as PuTTy:

  1. Configure the PuTTy for Serial connection.

  2. Enter these values:

    • Serial line to connect to: Enter the COM port number.

    • Speed: 115200

    • Flow control: None

  3. In the PuTTY dialog box, select the Session category.

  4. For Connection type, select Serial.

  5. For Saved Sessions, enter a new name, such as “Serial”.

  6. Click Save, and then click Open.

  7. When a terminal window opens, press the Enter key on your keyboard. The terminal window displays a Linux® command prompt.

Get Device IP Address

Get the Intel SoC hardware IP address from the Linux command line:

  1. At the Linux command line, enter: ifconfig.

  2. Locate the eth0 device and get the value of inet addr from the command-line output.

  3. Confirm the connection to the device. See Send PING Request to Intel SoC Device.

  4. Close the terminal session.

Open SSH Connection

Open an SSH connection to the device using a terminal software, such as PuTTy:

  1. To configure the PuTTy for SSH connection, select Session.

  2. Enter these values:

    • Host Name (or IP address): Enter the inet addr of the device.

    • Port: 22

  3. For Saved Sessions, enter a new name, such as SSH.

  4. Click Save, then Open.

  5. When a terminal window opens, log in as the user root with password cyclonevsoc. The terminal window displays a Linux terminal.

  6. Close the terminal session.

  7. At the MATLAB® command prompt, create a hardware object by specifying all the optional arguments:

    hTarget = dlhdl.Target('Intel','Interface','Ethernet','IPAddress','','Username', 'root', 'Password','cyclonevsoc')

    ### Validating connection to target over SSH
    ### SSH connection successful
    ### Validating connection to bitstream over Ethernet interface
    ### Bitstream connection over Ethernet interface successful
