This application note teaches you how to build an SOPC Builder system that includes a PCI Express MegaCore function and download it to a development board. This application note builds on the concepts discussed in the design example found in the PCIe Compiler User Guide. The design includes a GUI that you can use to specify reads, writes, and loopback commands to exercise the PCIe bus. You can also use this GUI to read PCIe configuration registers. You can observe PCIe traffic in the GUI's Display Window.

This application describes building the SOPC Builder system and downloading it to your development board. You bring up the demonstration GUI by running a script included with the design files.

Inexperienced users of the Quartus II software and SOPC Builder should begin with step 1. If you are an experienced user of the Quartus II software and SOPC Builder, you can use the provided SRAM Object File (.sof) and skip to step 12.
