How do I fix my Stratix V GX FPGA board after programming the wrong FPGA chip on the board?

Using Intel Quartus Prime Standard Edition 18.1, I was trying to program my Stratix V GX FPGA chip, but the software was only detecting the Altera MAX V control FPGA chip, not the ALTERA Stratix V chip. I tried to program this way but afterwards the board changed into a corrupted state. The fan doesn't turn on anymore, the software can no longer program the Stratix FPGA nor detect it, and the attempts I have tried to fix it by resetting the board and returning the DIP switches to their factory settings have all failed to fix the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

All dev kits have a restore option. You don't mention which board you have, but if it's this one (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/products/boards_and_kits/dev-kits/altera/kit-sv...), the user guide (https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/ug/ug_svgx_fpga_dev_kit.pdf) goes through the process of running the restore.sh script and the download includes an original image for the MAX V device.

I will look into that thank you. I am using the Stratix V GX FPGA Dev Kit so your solution should work for my board.

Hi,

 

May I know which exact Stratix V GX board are you using? If you are using Stratix V GX FPGA Development kit (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/products/boards_and_kits/dev-kits/altera/kit-sv...), may I know how do you connect to the JTAG Chain? Are you using embedded USB-Blaster or USB-Blaster cable?

I am using the Stratix V GX FPGA Development Kit, and this board has an embedded USB-blaster that connects to the JTAG chain. I connect the board to my laptop with a USB-A to Micro-USB cable.

Hi,

 

I suspect that your embedded USB-Blaster is not working. May I know if it is possible to use external USB-Blaster?
