hi.I have some problems in FPGA . Now i am debugging my application using VJTAG. but I cannot get the device name using get_device_names'
The command is exec C:\\altera\\10.0\\quartus\\bin64\\quartus_stp --tcl_eval get_device_names -hardware_name USB-Blaster[usb-0]
some errors happen. In the attachment you will see it.how I solve it?the quartus II version is 10. FPGA EP3C25Q240
Hi Chen Kang,
I think the method to execute the command is not correct. Kindly refer to link below for the correct format.
hi,yes, the command get_hardware _names is used. usb-blaster[usb-0] is displayed.It is strange . when i use signaltapII , the device name may be seen in it.This show the usb-blaster and device are ok. Also the script file u give me from the quartus scripting reference manual is not run.what can I do?
Hi Chen Kang,
It might be due to several reason. Can you try to execute "get_hardware_names" and get the correct hardware name. After you got it, then you use the hardware_name with the "get_devices_name" command.
You cannot use the tcl console in the Quartus software to run the jtag package which is only available in quartus_stp.
In the xterm,
1) quartus_sh -s
2) get_hardware_names to determine the names of the programming hardware attached to and configured for the JTAG server
3) get_device_names -hardware_name <hardware name>
hi, quartus_stp has been called before get_device_names.（the command is quartus_stp --tcl_eval get_hardware --get_hardware_name usb-blaster[usb-0]. In addition , get_hardware_names , which belong to jtag pakage,can be used in tcl_console(quartus_stp --tcl_eval get_hardware_names). the result isdisplayed: usb-blaster[usb-0]. If the command get_hardware_names is uesed without quartus_stp, the command can not work
