The Open New Hardware Target wizard provides an interactive way for you to connect to a hardware server and target. The wizard process has the following steps:
- Select a local or remote server, depending on what machine your hardware target is connected
Important: When using remote server, you need to manually start the Vivado hardware server (hw_server) application of the same version of Vivado software that you will use to connect to the hardware server.Tip: If you only want to connect to your lab machine remotely, you do not need to install the full Vivado design suite on that remote machine. Instead, you can install the light-weight Vivado Hardware Server (Standalone) tool on the remote machine.
Local server: Use this setting if your hardware target is connected to the same machine on which you are running the Vivado Lab Edition or Vivado IDE (See the following figure). The Vivado software automatically starts the Vivado hardware server (hw_server) application on the local machine.
Remote server: Use this setting if your hardware target is connected to a different machine on which you are running the Vivado Lab Edition or Vivado IDE. Specify the host name or IP address of the remote machine and the port number for the hardware server (hw_server) application that is running on that machine (see the following figures). Refer to Connecting to a Remote hw_server Running on a Lab Machine for more details on remote debugging.
- Select the appropriate hardware target from the list of targets that are managed by the hardware
server. Note that when you select a target, you see the various hardware devices
that are available on that hardware target.
Important: If there are third party devices in the JTAG chain, use the instructions in Xilinx Answer Record 61312 to add IDCODE, IR Length, and name for the unknown devices.
