A 2x15 ribbon cable is required to connect between the Alveo data center accelerator card and the programming module. See Programming Cable.
Connecting the Ribbon Cable
When connecting the ribbon cable and programming module, align the cable key with the spacing on the maintenance connector. The cable key is shown in the following image.
Debug-port enabled Alveo data center accelerator cards have a maintenance connector that attaches to the corresponding connector on the programming module through the ribbon cable. The corresponding connector on the programming module is shown in Figure 2. Figure 3 shows the ribbon cable attaching to the 2x15-pin maintenance connector of the Alveo U50 data center accelerator card.
