Cyclone V KIT

Honored Contributor I



I'm using Altera Cyclone V KIT and i have a ussue with Board Test System. In BTS i have error "No JTAG cable detected". In same time in Quartus i see complete JTAG Chain, that placed on the board, so i can tell, that the board, cable and drivers is ok. Also i checked Windows System Variables. I searched thru forum and find many alike problems, that solved with installation of propriate version of Quartus software. 

I'm using Windows 7 x64 and Quartus Prime Lite (v.16). 

Wich version of Quartus i must use and where can i find it, so it will be possible to work with BTS? 


Thanks in advance!

It's been a while since I played with the BTS (for the Arria 10 SoC dev kit), but if I remember correctly there can be conflicts between tools competing for the JTAG cable. Make sure the Quartus programmer and/or SignalTap tools are shut down before you open the BTS. 


Hope that helps.
