I have Cyclone IV GX FPGA Development Kit Board. I have made the time limited .sof file in Quartus. I have used a reference design for cyclone IV.(PCI Express to External Memory Reference Design:c4gx_pcie_qsys_msgdma_11_0_1.) In Quartus programmer I Sucessfully download the .sof file to fpga. The status LED (alive LED starts blinking). But when I want to see this board in linux, there is no board detected. Why? Any suggestions?
Application Note AN431 has all the details on how to run PCI Express to External Memory Reference Design, including how install the software driver, dev kit DIP switches settings, how to programm the FPGA.https://www.altera.com/content/dam/altera-www/global/en_us/pdfs/literature/an/an431.pdf
