Programmer - Need to select device twice?

Hi,

I'm using a TSom Evaluation Kit with a Cyclone V.

 

Every time I open the Programmer to upload my sof file, I have an device already selected. If I try to upload the configuration, it fails (see picture 1)

But if I go to "add file", select the file manually the same (?) device is added to the list and if I select "Program/Configure" on the 2nd device than it works (see picture 2)

Usually I wouldn't care that much, but this costed me almost 2 days of trying, while almost every tutorial I saw doesn't need to do that. What's behind this?

 

Thx

Hi Thomas,

 

By right it shouldnt be as the development kit has only 1 cyclone V SoC device. May i know how do you upload the sof?

 

Can you try to click "auto detect" first to let quartus determine the device available and then only add sof file into it?

 

Thank You.
