I using the Altera cyclone III EPC3C120 Development board connected by HSMC interfaces to Bitec HSMC quad video and DVI daughtercards. 

 

The kit refers to AN 427 VIP sample design and asks it to download from the ALTERA site. 

The name of the file is vip_example_design_3c120_<version>.But I cannot find this file on the website of Altera to start with the kit. 

 

I tried to run the sample code but i got these errors. 

 

 

Error: Top-level design entity "top" is undefined 

Error: Quartus II Analysis & Synthesis was unsuccessful. 1 error, 0 warnings 

Error: Peak virtual memory: 220 megabytes

Try running the tools as administrator. (Right clock the icon or start menu item and choose "Run as administrator". 

 

For some versions of the Altera tools, the installer did not set the permissions correctly on all the required files. I think they finally fixed it in 10.1.

Did you include your Sopc degin in the Quartus and add the files in the project?Add all the sdc files in the design?It should not come like that..I am surprised.Can u post your warnings?Check the warnings.You might be missing some thing there to add in your design.

Hi, 

 

I can understand.Just stay cool.I think if you use the free version the timestamp is not detected neither the sysid.Better ignore both the options.it wont bring any big difference in the system as it is you dont have multiple systems.Ignore them and proceed.You will get it working.If you want I can put up the example code here.But the file size is too big I guess.There are many posts on the forum with regard to the problem you are facing of the timestamp.Ignore it better I suggest.

Hey  

 

Do u have the daughter video card from bitec?U can try the code from bitec I have verified and it is working. 

 

Try to download the J8.sof of this example DVI 1080P Loop-through (Beta) 

 

The link is  

 

http://www.bitec.ltd.uk/ciii_video_dev_kit.html 

 

You may have to check the settings of the monitor also and select the DVI monitor.If you have a graphics card it will give u an option to choose the multiple monitor.Choose the correct moitor and set the refresh rate to 54 or 56 .And also the correct image format of DVI
