Which part of design example eth_e2e_e10 based on platform designer

Hello Sir?Madam

I am running the eth_e2e_e10 design example now.

I have a IP upgrading issue now .

When I open the Quartus pro GUI in linux, and open the dcd.qpf project , system reminder to upgrade several IP core, I can click button Launch IP upgrade Tools, and seems several IP cores be upgrade successfully except address_decide and sc_fifo, seems that processing must be done through platform designer, which fails to show up correctly.

 

May I know which part of design based on platform designer?

Because I can not lautch platform designer gui correctly, any steps I can take to solve this issue?

I guess the issue might be caught by JAVA, so I print java version here for reference.

 

thanks

 

Jim

Hi,

 

You may use the command line method to upgrade the qsys system without using the GUI

 

qsys-generate <IP variation file>.qsys

 

The IP upgrade option is available in Table 172. Command-Line Options for qsys-generate https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/ug/ug-qpp-platform-designer...

 

Do you see any error messages when you launch the GUI?

 

Thanks.

Best regards,

KhaiY

Hi KhaiY

 

thanks for your suggestion.

based on the error information from GUI when I was upgrading IP before , I knew 2 ip need to be upgrade manually.

So I close quartus GUI and did below

[root@fig01 e10]# pwd

/root/inteldevstack/a10_gx_pac_ias_1_2_pv/hw/samples/eth_e2e_e10/hw/rtl/e10

[root@fig01 e10]# cd address_decoder/

[root@fig01 address_decoder]# qsys-generate address_decode.qsys 

bash: qsys-generate: command not found...

[root@fig01 address_decoder]# 

 

seems command is not found for Intel PAC card OPAE design environment.

any other steps I can try for the platform designer GUI not showing correctly?that is part of design tolls ,which might be used in further development.

 

thanks

also I think the upgrading failed issue might be caused by the connections related to module rx_xcvr_half_clk from the printed error information.

it was not only about upgrade flow, but also design itself. this is the vendor provided design example ,I did not modify anything.

Hi,

I had build the design example and I am able to open the platform designer to upgrade the IP component.

As mentioned earlier, the platform designer is hang on initializing page, you may need to follow the instruction as below:

Hi MeiYanL,

 

Thanks for your effort.

I have tried that solution, platform designer was hanging and had no response to clicking of close windows button. Even I quite the Quartus ,platform designer was still there. I had to restart server to kill it.

May I know your Quartus version?

Have a good weekend

Hi,

I tested on the Quartus Prime Pro v17.1.1 software as recommended in the document.

According to https://www.intel.com/content/altera-www/global/en_us/index/support/support-resources/knowledge-base..., it might be cause by machine load.

You may need to try go to the Quartus menu: Assignments > Settings, then on the left panel select the IP Settings and on the right panel set the "Maximum Platform Designer memory usage" to the max value. 

For you information, you could use the task manager to close the Platform Designer UI.

 

Thanks

Hi MeiYanL,

 

thanks for your suggestion.

I have tried to maximum the memory usage, but can't click ok button since it is not visible and the setting windows is not able to zoo in or zoo out.

Hi, 

 

You may need to try the method as below: 

1. Resize the monitor with different scale and layout as step below:

-Right-click an empty spot on the desktop.

-Click Personalize.

-Click Display Settings.

-Note the current setting of the "Change size of..." and "Resolution".

-Choose the size and resolution to 1920x1080. 

-If the screen looks OK, click "Yes" to keep these display settings.

 

2. Resize Quartus Prime software front setting as steps below:

-open Quartus Prime software

-click Tools>Options>General>Fonts

 

Thanks

Hi MeiYanL,

 

thanks for your feedback.

My graphic card on clinet computer(working from home) supports resolution up to 1440*900 .

with that settings seems not big enough to fit part of Quartus window.

Can I get you compiled project ?

 

Best regard
