How to get *.jic to work on Cyclone 10 lp Dev board

After connecting a USB Blaster to the dev board's JTAG connector and setting dip(4) to off, I added the flash-loader ip to my simple dff design. I synthesized everything and created a *jic file to the appropriate components for this dev board. Using the programmer set for USB BLASTER and the jic file loaded, the upload failed. I've added pictures to illustrate what occurred. I know my setup is correct because I programmed the dev board using the *sof file and not bothered with the flash loading stuff. I thought I followed everything in an370 correctly, but I'm missing something. Any help would be greatly appreciated.altera1.jpg

As I stated, dip switch pin number 4 has been switched in the off position. I believe that is what you mean by sw1 bypass. So, yes I did that.

Hi,

 

Could you change the SW1.4 so that the VTAP is no longer detected on your JTAG chain? The VTAP will cause issue on programming the flash device.

John,

I've done that, as I've stated, in my statement of the problem.

Thank you.

altera4.jpgaltera3.jpgAnand,

Thank you for your test.jic file. I've changed the Programmer to use this file and I got the following. Your test.jic failed. Why?

Hi,

 

If you have make the changes in the SW1.4 then you shouldn't observed VTAP10 in your JTAG chain. Could you performed auto-detect again to make sure that you no longer observed VTAP10 in your chain before you start program your jic file.

  5. right click select change the file and add .jic file.

I've followed AN370. and I've attached that documentation for you to read.

 

VTAP10 appears in either dip switch position, so I deleted it in the programmer.

 

Either, the development board is bad (doubt), or the documentation/ procedure / software is out dated (I believe that) .

 

If there is someone that can ACTUALLY help me or direct me to SOMETHING that can solve this issue, I'd really appreciate it.

Opps, the dip switch was not seated all the way. It now works.

Sorry.

It works, I can now use this board!

Thank you for your help.
