This VI is required to connect to an FPGA from the host. It calls the transfer VI underneath to send over the bitstream, then initiates a normal FPGA open call. This VI opens a reference to an FPGA device on the ATCA-3671. It must be used in place of the standard Open FPGA Reference VI due to the unique nature of the ATCA-3671 hardware platform, which requires that the FPGA bitstream be transferred over the network to the embedded controller on the ATCA-3671 before reprogramming can occur.


i/o RIO device specifies the resource name of the ATCA-3671 FPGA module to be opened.
abc IP address specifies the IP address of the ATCA-3671 on the network.
bitfile_path bitfile path specifies the filename of the LabVIEW FPGA bitstream to be opened on the ATCA-3671 FPGA device.
error_in error in describes error conditions that occur before this node runs. This input provides standard error in functionality. If error in indicates an error, the node doesn't execute.
fpga_reference_out FPGA reference out returns a reference to an FPGA VI.
error_out error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.
