2015.1 - How to connect to multiple cables on the same machine

Description

If there are multiple cables connected to the same machine, hw_server will automatically detect and list all of the hw_targets.

Solution

In the log below, I have 2 PCUSB2 cables connected to a remote machine:

connect_hw_server -url xsjgracek1w7:3121

INFO: [Labtools 27-2285] Connecting to hw_server url TCP:comptest:3121

xsjgracek1w7:3121

After connecting, the get_hw_targets command will return a list of the cables connected to the machine:

get_hw_targets

comptest:3121/xilinx_tcf/Xilinx/00000acb477801 comptest:3121/xilinx_tcf/Xilinx/0000128f316401

You can then select which one to connect to:

open_hw_target [lindex [get_hw_targets] 0]

or

open_hw_target [lindex [get_hw_targets] 1]

You can also connect to a particular cable by specifying the cable ID (the example below shows the second cable in the get_hw_targets list):

open_hw_target {comptest:3121/xilinx_tcf/Xilinx/0000128f316401}
