The ATCA-3671 Transfer Bitstream VI initiates a connection to ‘lvsrv’ and transfers the bitstream contents over the network when open and called by the ATCA-3671 Open FPGA Reference VI.

This VI transfers an LVBITX file (LabVIEW FPGA bitstream) onto the ATCA-3671 over the network. It is a required operation before a new FPGA bitstream can be programmed onto the device. Therefore, it is called by ATCA-3671 Open FPGA Reference and should not be called separately in the user's diagram.


abc IP address specifies the IP address of the ATCA-3671 on the network.
fpga_id FPGA ID specifies the ATCA-3671 FPGA ID of the device which should be assigned the new bitstream.
lvbitx_file LVBITX file specifies the filename of the LVBITX file used for transferring FPGA bitstream data.
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.
i32 bytes sent reports the number of bytes in the bistream that were transferred to the ATCA-3671.
u32 return status reports the error status returned by the ATCA-3671 firmware. Non-zero values indicate invalid parameters, even if the operation itself did not return an error in error out.
error_out error out contains error information. This output provides standard error out functionality.
