What does it mean when configuration fails, and nSTATUS stays low and pulses high?

Hi all,

We are using a MAX10 (10M08DAF256C8G) for one of our projects. We try to program either a .SOF or .POF we get a failure. Yet when we check the JTAG chain, it reports successful. The erase command also reports successful. The examine command reported successful. The auto detect command was also successful and would report what kind of chip was connected.

 

We have the nSTATUS pin is tied high through a 10K pull-up as stated in the intel guideline. Upon power cycle the nSTATUS pin is always low. When a configuration is attempted the nSTATUS pin starts pulsing. When we scope the nSTATUS pin we see that it is low for 2.75ms and then pulses high for 25us and repeats this cycle.

Hi AGime3, Have you check your nSTATUS voltage? I suspect your nSTATUS voltage is not stable. And one more thing, can you also check the nCONFIG pin & nCONFIG voltage? Let me know the result. Thanks

Hello MShafig,

 

So we have checked all voltages on our board. Our nSTATUS pin is connected to a 10k pull up to 2.5v. The 2.5v is stable we have scoped it through many cycles of trying to program the chip to see if the voltage sags but we get nothing. We have also checked the 1.25v supply as well and it is stable as well.

 

The nCONFIG pin is connected the same way to 2.5v through a 10k resistor. The nCONFIG voltage is stable and is always high.

 

please let me know if you can think of any other problems as we have kind of run out of ideas and have tried everything on this forum. We have done many designs with many MAX10 and Cyclone chips, but this is the first time we use one that has an internal AD, and this is the first one we are having real trouble with. Thanks for your response and looking forward for your next.

Hello MShafig

 

I have attached here a sequence of errors that we get when trying to configure the device. The examine command works, the erase works 50% of the time but the verify, blank check and the program never works. I have used both Quartus 17.1 and 18 programmer for this.

Hi,

 

I'm really apologize for late reply. I got an urgent project in last month.

May I know your status in this issue? Are you able to solve and find the solution?
