.sof to flash

Hi: 

 

Im using an Altera DE0 and I've been wonder if there is a way to save the .sof file in the built in flash memory so when the FPGA goes on, it begins with that program intead of the test program (for example, arduino uno does exactly that) 

 

Thanks in advance.

There's the "sof2flash" command that's (more or less) part of the tools for the Nios II softcore processor. For the most part, it's just creating an SREC file...

I'm not sure that would even be a part of Quartus II in that version. I'm guessing you'd also need the Nios II tools installed as well. I'd recommend upgrading (if possible) to the latest version of the tools (Quartus II and Nios II tools at least) that support the FPGA on the DE0.
