[Failed] while downloading non-volatile *.jic File into FPGA

There is a problem, in downloading a non-volatile *.jic File into FPGA.

Depending on *.sof, sof can download to the board.

 

The problem comes with jic file.

Maybe while converting, or writing on DE1-SoC.

 

 

Equipment:

- Board: DE1-SoC, 5CSEMA5F31C6, rev.G

- Quartus II, 18.1 Lite

- Example: Demonstrations\FPGA\my_first_fpga\my_first_fpga.qpf

 

Converting:

- jic

- EPCS128

- Active Serial

- Flash Loader: Cyclone V, 5CSEMA5

 

Programmer:

- Hardware-Setup: DE-SoC [USB-1]

- Mode: JTAG

- Autodetect

- File for EPCS128: Demo.jic

 

Between 35 - 75 %, the process Failed.

 

Is there something I can do?

 

Are there other possibilities for non-volatile configuration the FGPA-Board?

 

With a Cyclone II Board (Quartus II, 13.0sp1), I have no problem with *.pof File,

Mode Active Serial Programming.

Hi,

 

Could you provide me the full Quartus message to understand what issue you are observing? How many device is in your chain?

Hi JohnT,

 

thank you for response.

 

The problem was a MSEL problem.

 

The default MSEL = 10010 didn't work.

 

To flash non-volatile, MSEL = 01001 works fine.

Hi,

 

I am glad that the issue is resolved. Could you confirm if your MSEL is correct?

 

The reason is that MSEL = 10010 should the correct setting. Please double confirm if you the SW is high or low.
