Altera Cyclone V SoC chip overheating

Jump to solution

I was working on Altera Cyclone V De10 Nano board. Everything seems to be working fine until I manually probed the JP1-GPIO pins to measure the waveform across the pins.

 

After this, the board seemed to behave weirdly. I tried booting the default Xfce image. It got stuck at

HDMI Warning: Display not detected

HDMI Warning: No Valid Timing Signal found, setting to default 1024*768.

 

The Soc chip also seems to be overheating.

I tried measuring the voltages across test points and everything looks good.

 

Is there a chance that my board got faulted? If so, how can I verify it?

 

Thank You

Hi Shiva, I recommend you to use deferential prob and to attach the prob first before powering the board without touching any pin by mistake. It seems a user error, The board was working fine until you manually probed some pins then the issue appeared. Please take care while touching any pin while running as some pins are so sensitive (mainly the feedback pin of power devices and some digital pins). Regards.

I think it is normal for it to be warm. This is probably one reason why they have the plastic guard on top of it.

I have same board, and it is always warm, and it is working just fine.

Hi, Having the board warm is normal, let's focus on the performance, Do you have any concern about the performance? If yes, please describe in details.

@Embedded_guy, Yes I have perfomance issues with the board.

When I boot with the default Xfce image that comes along with the board...The execution stops at HDMI Warning Step and then automatically resets. This keeps on happening again and again. If possible can you explain what would have gone wrong?.. I did not do anything. I just put the default image that came along with the SD Card.

 

Here is the Log of the execution
