At the beginning of each configuration, you have to set up the available hardware and I/O modules. You define which modules are used in your system and which I/O modules are connected on which port of the DSP Core.

To start the configuration, select the desired device in the project tree and then select Hardware. In the Hardware units area you find the basic hardware parts, which are required for a system, like DSP unit, power supplies or Concentrators. Click Add Unit to add all modules that are available in your system. To delete a selected module from the system, click Remove Unit.

If you add a new device in your Project tree, first always go to <Device>/Hardware and select the type of your device in the Unit Options area. To select device type, select the default entry and change the core type to the one you want to configure.

If you do not see your product, click Click here to see more modules or the menu Options/Configuration…/Product filter. Here you can set the product filters.
