Boot fails from EPCS

Jump to solution

Actualy I’m using hardware card based on Cyclone 10LP FPGA for my project.

 I'm using to try to develop a small test program. on the platform designer i used the "Serial Flash Controller Intel FPGA IP" to boot from EPCS16.

I create the .sof file and .hex files as detailed in the manuals and program the flash with a .jic file (As mode), the FPGA appears to configure correctly (blinking of led) but no sign that the NIOS is running. I already look on the forums the similar problem and I followed your advice but no solution.

 

Quartus : V 18.1 prime lite edition

FPGA : Cyc 10 LP

Memory: EPCS16

MSEL : Standard 011

epcs clk : 20 Mhz

NIOS clk : 90 Mhz

NIOS II Core : Nios II e

 

can you help me to solve this issue? 

 

best regards

Hi I followed these steps, but I modified the second. “2. Click on HEX data->properties ->select absolute addressing” instead of “Click on HEX data->properties ->select relative address and set it =auto” and also putting the right address on reset vector offset now the NIOS boot correctly. Thank you Anand for your help. Best regerds

Hi,

 

Re-Check the steps and file used for creating .jic.

Attached the example project. compare the map file for debugging.

If possible please attach the .map, .sof and .hex file.

 

Let me know if this has helped resolve the issue you are facing or if you need any further assistance.
