I want to add the .hex output file of a simple NIOS II project into the download process of the bitstream in quartus. I already added the .qip file (necessary for memory initialization) to my quartus project. But the software isn't processed after programming. Programming and running the software via JTAG-UART works.
I am using the Quartus Prime Lite Edtion 18.0. with the DEO-NANO development board (CYCLONE IV EP4CE22F17C6N as on board FPGA).
So what can be the reason for my problem? What do I have to add in my development process? What do I forget?
Best regards Florian
Add a rom memory component to your .Qys platform and use the .hex as an initialization file for the component.
Be careful not to use licensed IP in your configuration.
