The ip address of the broad is

6 load the Arduino IDE from the browser

Open a browser and type the address: http://(ip_addres_of_the_broad):8888

7 Load a configuration

Select the drop-down list, you can choose the configuration of the broad. The broad will program the fgpa program based on your choice.
