Hello Rupok, 

 

Can you share your solution ? 

I've the similar problem and can't resolve it since 3 days. 

I've tried 2 different projects - one with On-Chip memory, other with SDRAM. 

The result is the same in both cases - downloading begins ... then fails suddenly. 

Here is the message in console: 

 

Using cable "DE-SoC [USB-1]", device 2, instance 0x00 

Pausing target processor: not responding. 

Resetting and trying again: FAILED 

Leaving target processor paused 

 

Thanks in advance. 

 

Pavel.

check the resets and clock signals to the core CPU. I'd say there is a good chance either that it's not receiving any clock or that it's stuck in reset. For example with the wrong polarity defined on the reset input.

Hi,

 

I found out that I had not moved one of the keys on my MAX 10 board up to the correct position. By moving key 9 to the up position Nios II was able to upload the ELF file without a problem.
