Cyclone 10 LP sof2flash unrecognized device family

Hello, 

 

I am trying to generate programming files for a Cyclone 10 LP device using the sof2flash tool of the Nios EDS in Quartus Prime 17.1.1.593: 

 

sof2flash --input="abc.sof" --output="abc.flash" --epcs --verbose  

 

But I get the error message: sof2flash: Unrecognized device family in SOF. 

Why is this Quartus version not recognizing Cyclone 10 LP? Is there a workaround for this? 

 

I appreciate any help on this issue. 

 

 

Best regards 

Christopher

I could not find a solution to the problem so I changed my programming file generation. I am now using the "Convert Programming Files..." tool from quartus to generate a .jic file from the .sof and the .hex file that can be generated with the mem_init_generate build target of NiosII SBT. 

 

See AN-736 from Altera for details.
