How to configure Cyclone-10 FPGA using passive serial configuration mode using .hexout or .ttf file?

Hello,

 

We are trying to configure the Cyclone-10 FPGA using passive serial config mode using.hexout and .ttf file but facing issue that config done does not come up.

 

We got the c-code for the passive serial config mode which takes .rbl file as a input. (microblaster code for passive serial config). is there any c code available which takes .hexout or .ttf file as a input and configure the FPGA?

 

is there any app note which has listed out the steps to configure the FPGA with .hexout or .ttf binary file?

 

Thanks and Regards

Hello Tarang,

Can you share the error message you getting while configuring ? Can you check the nSTATUS line and Init_done ?

Can you also check MSEL setting are correct ?

There is app note for generating the configuration file ; but i am not sure how much it can help you ..

Thank you,

Hello Sree,

 

I am configuring the FPGA through on board processor. after sending all configuration data, states of following lines are -

nSTATUS - 0

INIT_DONE - 1

CONFIG_DONE - 1

I believe MSEL pins are in correct state as "000" for standard passive serial configuration mode

 

Thanks and Regards

Hello Tarang,

Here is the few application note which you may be already come across ;

Out of curiosity; you can convert the .sof files into rbf format which the c code is meant to program into the flash devices .May I know why you are not choosing that option ?

 

Thank you ,
