Hi AKAYA,

 

Can you provide the screenshot of the error (include the error ID code )?

 

When you generate .pof file, did you choose mode "internal configuration"?

 

And, if you are using Intel MAX 10 Dev kit, please set the SW2 to default value.

 

Thanks

"should be set to 1-bit passive. so, i have set it to the same."

In your custom board, did you using 512Mb CFI flash?

The manual is based on MAX 10 Dev kit (have 512Mb QSPI flash). You need to select the correct QSPI based on your custom board.

 

"am working on a customized board then how to set those switches?"

The SW2 used to bypass JTAG and HSMC. You no need to worry is your board dont have this switch.

 

Can you sent your screenshot of the error (include the error ID code )?

 

Thanks

Hi AKAYA,

 

I dont think MAX 10 is supports configuration with external flash (e.g QSPI flash) as it is not stated in the user manual.

Can you try to use the internal flash? Generate your pof using internal flash.

 

You go to File --> Convert Programming Files --> Mode --> Internal Configuration.

 

I hope this will help.

 

thanks😉

thanks for the reply....

 

this manual explains about the QSPI programming (page 11)

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/an/an741.pdf

 

can you please check it once.

with internal configuration we can not flash the external flash. I can work fine with the UFM memory. I need to extend it to the external flash (QSPI).

 

will the external flash work for 10M50 series?

 

kindly waiting for the reply....
