HAL-Driver not included in BSP

Hallo! 

 

I'm currently trying to include a driver into the auto-generated HAL in a BSP. I followed the steps in the "Nios II Software Developers Handbook" from May 2011 (p. 7-20ff). 

So I currently have a folder named "ip" in the projects root directory (where the qpf-Project file is) with: 

 

ip 

- inc 

-- sample_regs.h 

- HAL 

-- inc 

--- sample.h 

-- src 

--- sample.c 

- sample_sw.tcl 

 

I set the "set_sw_property hw_class_name" to the "set_module_property NAME" from the sample_hw.tcl. 

 

But when I create a new BSP for the Nios .sopcinfo-File the files from this driver are not included. 

Do you have an idea where I missed something? 

 

Regards, 

Markus

I found my mistake: It was in the sample_sw.tcl file. 

The copied line 

"set_sw_property min_compatible_hw_version 7.1" 

from an altera sample IP did not match the version 1.0 from my hardware. 

So the change to 

"set_sw_property min_compatible_hw_version 1.0" 

solved it. 

Now the source files are in the BSP.
