has anyone had issues programming Cyclone 10 GX FPGA using Cyclone 10 GX FPGA Development Kit?

I'm currently working with the Cyclone 10 GX Dev kit for a development project and I'm having issues with the JTAG chain ​after programming the FPGA in Active Serial mode. The JTAG chain is broken after programming the FPGA only once and now I can't figure out how to restore the JTAG chain. I'm using the latest Quartus prime software v18.1. Has anyone had a similar problem? any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you!

Hi LGonz14,

 

Can you kindly try to change your TCK frequency to 6 MHz (default value)?

Kindly try it out with your design and let me know the result.

 

Thanks😉

Hi MShafiq, Unfortunately, setting the TCK frequency to 6Mhz doesn’t make a difference because the programmer gives me the following error message: Error(209040): Can't access JTAG chain Regards, Luis A.

Hi Luis,

 

Can you try to change the MSEL and power-up the board?

This to ensure the board still can detect the JTAG chain.

If can’t detect, mean your board is dead.

 

Thanks.
