Connect UP3 to PC for Quartus

Hi, I'm new to the FPGA world and I have an Altera UP3 with a CYCLONE 1. I would like to connect the board to the pc for the Quartus program but I can't see the board on windows. Now I'm using Windows 10 and Quartus 9.1, I'm connecting the board with a Byteblaster 2 and an LPT port to USB2.0 converter. Any help is appreciated.

 

 

Thanks.

Hi PPerr5,

 

It's old development kit. your are not going to get any support from Intel Altera.

However,

  1. Is your board working, can you see led's toggling.(Assuming board is working)
  2. Open Programmer from tools menu.
  3. Click on Hardware setup button.
  4. Select the hardware from the drop down list, hardware type=ByteBlaster II and port=LTP1.

 

If you can't see the option in drop down list. It may be due to drivers or LPT port to USB2.0 issues.

 

However you can find more information from below link.
