Cyclone V SoC Development Kit License question

Hi,

I want to buy the Cyclone V SoC Development Kit with SOC EDS,

but I don't know whether it contains all the development environment for free(basically ARM DS license).

What's the difference between ARM DS and ARM DS-5?

Does this support the HPS RTOS?

Also does this kit support the Terasic optical fiber cable module?

 

Thank you.

Reguards.

Hi Alex


Arm-DS and Arm-DS 5 is the same thing Arm-DS 5 is the version of the tool.

The Cyclone V SOC Development Kit does not contain the Arm-DS licensing.

Hi,

I applied ARM DS for 30 day free license but when I want to debug I got the following error:

CAlex_0-1682065325132.png

I used the SOC EDS to lanch the armds_ide,

I set the debug config as followed:

intel->cyclone V soc->dual core->cpu_0

I chose USB-Blast and auto HZ, USB 1 was found.

The tortural Hardware Library (HWLibs) | Documentation | RocketBoards.org

used the Dstream but my Dstream selection didn't found any device.

How can I fix that?

Hi Alex


Could you try adding your license file path into windows environmental variable?

ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE 


USB Blaster is fine too, you do not need to change it to Dstream.

Any update on this case?

Do you need some more time for this case?

Hi,

I set the ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE as you suggested,

It didn't work for me.

It searched the AppData/Roaming/Arm/ARM DS 2022.2/license.dat

But there was no such file.

I don't know what to do to fix it.

Hi Alex

 

Could you try adding the path to the license in the license manager once again.

Help >> License Manager

It is weird, the license is working fine on my end.
