To connect to a hardware target in Vivado, do the following:

  1. Ensure the appropriate configuration mode (Master SPI or Master BPI) is selected on the FPGA mode pins of the hardware target to configure the FPGA from a configuration memory device.

    For more information, see the appropriate Configuration User Guide for the device you are targeting.

  2. Follow the steps in Programming the FPGA Device to connect to the hardware target.
    Important: If the board is powered off or cable disconnected, Vivado IDE closes the hardware target. Any Vivado operation in the main Vivado thread is also canceled.
