Some FPGA targets have flash memory that can store FPGA VIs. Refer to the specific FPGA target hardware documentation for information about flash memory.

Complete the following steps to automatically run an FPGA VI that is loaded from flash memory when you power on an FPGA target.

  1. Right-click and the FPGA build specification you want to run in the Project Explorer window and select Properties from the shortcut menu. The Compilation Properties dialog box appears.
  2. On the Information page, place a checkmark in the Run when loaded to FPGA checkbox.
  3. Click the OK button.
  4. Configure the FPGA target to load the VI automatically when powered on.
Note  Configuring FPGA VIs to run automatically also affects the operation of the Open FPGA VI Reference function and downloading methods if the FPGA build specification is configured according to the steps above.
