Processing Cyclone III project converted to Cyclone 10 LP gives EPCS pin configuration error.

Hello,

 

I have converted my project to Cyclone 10 LP FPGA and during processing of the project I got the following errors:

Error (12002): Port "data0_to_the_epcs_controller" does not exist in macrofunction "inst" Error (12002): Port "dclk_from_the_epcs_controller" does not exist in macrofunction "inst" Error (12002): Port "sce_from_the_epcs_controller" does not exist in macrofunction "inst" Error (12002): Port "sdo_from_the_epcs_controller" does not exist in macrofunction "inst"

I have configured the EPCS-controller pins to "use as regular I/O".

I need to write to the EPCS-eeprom after configuration because I want to remote update my system.

Can anybody help me?

 

Regards,

 

Wamor

Hello Vikas,

 

I am using Quartus Prime Lite Edition version 18.0.0. To generate the MegaCore I can only select Platform Designer. I have no choice to select QSys.

When I select my NIOS processor then right-click and select Open Design File then Platform Designer will be opened. After generating the processor and proces the project in Quartus I got the above mentioned errors.

Any idea what is happening? Should I rebuild my NIOS processor completely with the Platform Designer to fix the error?

 

Best regards,

 

Wamor

Hi Wamor,

Actually cyclone 10 lp does not support legacy epcs/epcqx1 flash controller ip.  so use either using ASMI Parallel IP or ASMI Parallel II IP which has similar feature refer the following link,

 https://www.altera.com/content/dam/altera-www/global/en_us/pdfs/literature/ug/ug-asmi2.pdf  

 

I tried to replicate the issue & I came across different errors but eventually I could able to do by rebuilding NIOS & ASMI Parallel IP(Instead EPCS controller).

 

Best Regards
