ADC Toolkit: No associated hardware detected

I know my board is connected, I know it has being programmed and it is using the ADC with 'JTAG to Avalon Bridge'.... Yet when I run System Console, ADC Toolkit gives me 'No associated hardware detected'

My Quartus version is 20.1.1 Build 720

Any suggestions as to how I get System Console to detect my ADC?

I'll add some more info, I was following: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oO1RFa-4Xk

There were a couple of differences along the way, like instead of  Qsys, I'm using Platform Designer and instead of 'Altera Modular ADC Core' it's named 'Modular ADC Core Intel...'. So obviously there have been changes since the tutorial.

Another thing to add, when I load up System Console, I get some messages and there are some red crosses and I don't know what they mean, see image.

Can anyone help with this?

Hi there, which quartus version are you using? One thing you can do is to revert back to an older Quartus version and see if that works? If it doesnt, then probably it has nothing to do with the version but rather the design itself.

For "No associated hardware detected", try closing the System Console first --> Goto Programmer -->  program the sof into the device --> Run System Console.

You can also use this design: https://fpgacloud.intel.com/devstore/platform/16.0.0/Standard/max-10-adc-with-threshold-violation-de...

This is the same implementation as the youtube how to video with additional threshold violation detection.

As a sanity check, download Quartus programmer v16.0, and use the system console to run the design. Make sure that it works.

Then you can try the same design with the newer Quartus version you have installed.

This way, you can rule out if this is a Quartus version issue or design issue.

I opened the design you gave me the link to, and it compiles ok. However, my pin assignments are different, so I move the clock and reset to the pins assigned on my board and I try to compile. It fails with this:

Error (170084): Can't route signal "ADC2_PLL:pll|ADC2_PLL_altpll_5q22:sd1|wire_pll7_clk[0]" to atom "ADC2_ADC:adc|altera_modular_adc_control:control_internal|fiftyfivenm_adcblock_top_wrapper:adc_inst|fiftyfivenm_adcblock_primitive_wrapper:adcblock_instance|primitive_instance"

My version is 20.1.1 Build 720 SJ Lite Edition

I think you will have to either Upgrade the IP or rebuild (instantiate the newer IP to replace the old one). Then try compiling again.
