Hello Anand,

Thank you for your answer, I'm using the GUI to generate a Chain Description File (.cdf) for manual test . But I need to automate this. The software will generate the CDF file for each board according to board version.

Thank you for your Help.

Hi,

 

.cdf can only be generated using GUI.

 

However we are program fpga without cdf file using device indexing.

>quartus_pgm -m JTAG -o p;<file name>.sof@1

 

For scripting help type quartus_sh --qhelp to get scripting help from GUI.

 

Regards

Anand
