SOPC builder system

Hi all, 

I am new to cyclone 2. I have a device EP2C20F484C7. I am able to configure the device using C2_Starter_NIOS.sof, ep2c20.sof etc but debugging and running the 'Count Binary' application on NIOS2 I am getting error :  

( There are no Nios II CPUs with debug modules available which match the values specified. Please check that your PLD is correctly configured, downloading a new SOF file if necessary. ) 

I think I might be selecting wrong .ptf file while creating new application. 

Which .ptf file should I use? Or what is the problem with it? Am i missing something? 

 

Thanks for the solution!!!

HI, 

 

after programming just keep sw12 on run mode and then debug. You will.

Thanks for the reply. I have programmed C2_Starter_NIOS2 on the cyclone2 board and I am using "niosII_cycloneII_2c35\full_2C35.ptf" for creating the application. My board is "EP2C20F484C7".  

 

I am now getting the error : (  

Reading System ID at address 0x01211158: does not match  

ID value does not match: read 0xDBDBDBDB; expected 0x6416665B 

Timestamp value does not match: image on board is older than expected 

Read timestamp 7:24:35 1950/10/15; expected 15:24:13 2006/04/21 

The software you are downloading may not run on the system which is  

currently configured into the device. Please download the correct SOF or  

recompile. ) 

 

I think .sof and .ptf files I have selected are incompatible. How can I resolve it? 

 

Thank you

Hi, 

 

if you have changed your SOPC system then *.ptf file will change in that case you need to create new project in NIOSII IDE and give path to new *.ptf file. Also make sure that your ram connection is correct in SOPC system.

When I used C2_Starter_SD_Card_Audio.sof and C2_Starter_SD_Card_Audio.ptf files for the application 'count_binary' I am able to see the output on the console but not on the board with LEDs and Seven Segment display. I couldn't find any combination of .sof and .ptf files that runs this program 'count_binary' successfully. What do I need to do to see the output on the board? 

 

Thanks a lot for help.

Taken from the source code of the count_binary project: 

* Requirements * ************** * This program requires the following devices to be configured: * an LED PIO named 'led_pio', * a Seven Segment Display PIO named 'seven_seg_pio', * an LCD Display named 'lcd_display', * a Button PIO named 'button_pio', * a UART (JTAG or standard serial) 

 

Do you have all those components in your SOPC project?

And are the names exactly the same? Are they connected to the correct pins on the top level file?
