The FrontPanel interface has a simple presentation as shown on the next page with three attached devices.

Available devices are shown in individual “Device Panels” with each panel providing functionality specifically for that device.  Device Panels are automatically updated as USB devices are added and removed from the bus.  If you have BIOS-supported PCI Express hot-plug (e.g. ExpressCard on laptops), then PCI Express updates also occur.

The left side of the Device Panel is populated with information such as the product name, the user-specified Device ID, serial number, and firmware.  The Device ID is a clickable label.  When clicked, a dialog will appear allowing you to change the Device ID.

Below the device information is a small icon which will be colored (blue and green) when the FPGA on the device is enabled with the FrontPanel Host Interface.  When a Host Interface is not detected, the icon will display in gray.

Icons to the right of the device information are described in the following sections.
