Question on SD Card Music Player example on Cyclone II FPGA Starter Development Kit

Hello,  

 

I am using Cyclone II FPGA Starter Board. I am able to complete all the examples in the User Guide except the last one: SD Card Music Player. I am stuck at step 4 after loading the sof file: 

 

"4. Run the Nios II IDE under the workspace CII_Starter_SD_Card_Audio" 

 

What does this mean? Which file in the CII_Starter_SD_Card_Audio folder is to be opened by Nios II IDE?  

 

I tried CII_Starter_SD_Card_Audio.qpf, but it gets opened by Quartus IDE instead. I can compile it successfully but don't know what to do next.  

 

Please advise. Thanks.

Hi, 

The qpf file is Quartus Project File (text file), not for Nios II IDE. 

 

In my opinion, you have  

to import (by the Nios II IDE menu> Import),  

or to create a new Nios II IDE project (for Quartus II <= 9.0sp2) and include the source files (*.h, *.c...)

Hi mmTsuchi, 

 

Thanks for your reply. But there are on Nios IDE project files (.project or .cdtproject) in the folder CII_Starter_SD_Card_Audio, and the files are mostly *.v files. I didn't find a way to import them. Could you please elaborate a little more on how to do it? 

 

Thanks,

*.v are Verilog files. Those files are Hardware Description Langage files and are NOT parts of NIOS software files.

Do you have *.c, *.h or perhaps *.zip *.tgz *.tbz *.bz *.gz ...?
