What programming cable supports the Cyclone EP2C5F256C8 device? I am using the USB Blaster and it doesn't seem to allowing me to program the device. The link below doesn't not list the Cyclone II.

Hi,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel community.

 

The link provided was broken.

By referring to USB Blaster Userguide(page 3) below, USB blaster do support Cyclone series. You may try to refer to our userguide.

Let me know if you need further information.

Aiman, Thanks for the reply. I am trying to examine the checksum from the Cyclone EP2C5F256C8 device? However, when I do a auto detect in the programming mode it detects the device, but it will not allow me to select any of the features: examine, program, verify, etc..? Do you know why?

Hi Vue Lor,

 

-May I know how did you perform this configuration?

-What did you see when you were performing this? Is the feature grey out?

-are you not able to select or is it a functionality problem?

-What file did you use: .sof?.pof?

-what is the bitsream?

 

Regards,

Aiman

Aiman, I am using Quartus II 13 SP1 on a Window 7 64 bit, when I open Quartus. I go in the Tools tab and pick programmer. I do auto detect to detect my device, but then all the features are grey out and will not allow me select any feature?

Aiman, Evidently, I figured that the EP2C5 wasn’t programmable? However, I am using Quartus 13 SP1 and USB Blaster on Windows 7 OS 64 bit, but for now I think I am ok. thanks for all your help?
