DE0-Nano, Configuration via Passive Serial

Good day,  

I've already bought a bit DE1 and fully satisfied with it. 

Now I wanted to order DE0-Nano for my project.  

It is configured using "Passive Serial" means PIC32.  

In the circuit diagram of DE0-Nano I think unfortunately  

no information where the "DATA0" lead "CONF_DONE", "DCLK",  

"nSTATUS" and "nCONFIG". 

Is it possible to configure DE0-Nano via PS? 

 

Dmitriy 

 

p.S. sorry for my english...

Hi Dmitriy. 

 

I don't one one, but since it has a EP3C16, it looks like it's probably setup as a Active Serial configuration.  

 

The Clock, Data0, nSTATUS and nCONFIG should be all available, either at the EP3C16 or through pull-ups, but the mode select pins, may be hard wired on the board. 

 

The only way to find out is to get a schematic, but I couldn't find one the Terasic site.

Hi,  

I have the schematic. It is at DE0 Nano-CDROM.  

There is no configuration PROM and USB-Blaster in the schematic.  

I can not understand if "DE0 nano" can be configured via AS. 

The configuration pins are on page 8 (bottom right), more is not there. 

I need the information of where these pins are connected.
