Serial Flash Loader : Can't recognize silicon ID

Hi folks, 

 

I stumbled upon an issue for which I need some answers. 

 

I am trying to create a .jic file from a .sof for a 5CGXFC7C6F23I. However, in the Quartus "Convert Programming File" tool, I can only choose "5CGXFC7C6" as the device under "Flash Loader", which gives this:

Then, when I try to program the device, I get: 

 

Info (209060): Started Programmer operation at Wed Mar 01 16:10:43 2017 Info (209016): Configuring device index 1 Info (209017): Device 1 contains JTAG ID code 0x02B030DD Info (209007): Configuration succeeded -- 1 device(s) configured Error (209025): Can't recognize silicon ID for device 1. A device's silicon ID is different from its JTAG ID. Verify that all cables are securely connected, select a different device, or check the power on the target system. Make sure the device pins are connected and configured correctly. Error (209012): Operation failed Info (209061): Ended Programmer operation at Wed Mar 01 16:10:46 2017  

 

Would any of you have an idea what's going on? 

 

Thanks!

The naming of the device in the convert files dialog is fine. 

 

As for using the .jic file, have you first programmed the FPGA with a design that includes the serial flash loader or attached the .jic in the Programmer to a .sof with the SFL design? You can't use a .jic without first putting a design on the FPGA that acts as the go-between JTAG and the configuration device.

According to the screenshot file (don't know why it has to be renamed to *.png to open it), the programmer configuration is correct. "Can't recognize silicon ID for device 1" would refer to a hardware problem of the flash connection in this case. Has the hardware been verified?

Thank you for the information. It indeed seems the flash memory it at cause.
