How to program flash-memory on Cyclone 10 GX Development Kit Board?

Quartus Prime Pro 18.1.0

Being new to FPGAs I managed to create and test a simple configuration on the dev-kit-board, using Quartus Programmer. Unfortunately I couldn't find a detailed description on how to program the configuration to the EPCQL or to the NOR-Flash on the board.

Thanks!

Hi CSchw,

 

In order to access the EPCQL, first you need to make sure the MSEL pins are set to ASx1/x4 mode . You should be able to check this dip SW1 seetings under Table 8. Configuration Mode Settings from the Cyclone 10 GX dev kit user guide from the link below:

Then you need to use the SFL (Serial Flash Loader IP) method to program the EPCQL device via Quartus programmer. You can refer to the AN370 on the steps to generate and program the .jic programming file suign SFL method:

Otherwise you can check out the how to video on this too:
