Sir,i hv created a SOPC design using nios II (s) , jtag, sdram,pio,timer,sysid using Quartus 7.2 and trying to run hello program on this design using Nios IDE 7.2 . Build is successful, however running the program gives Launching->Error starting process . Same problem is encountered with Quartus 8.0. Kindly give solution to eliminate this problem. using CycloneII EP2C35F672C6ES Altera's DE2 board thnks
Hi ragad,could you provide any kind of information on how you're trying to run your application. Are you trying to write your application to flash, or are you trying to debug? Is a .sof file present and downloaded to the board?
Sir,Yes I have downloaded SOF file to the FPGA mentioned. This is a regular experiments ( For hello world) our students are performing. I want to extend the design for the Application layer in TCP/IP interface. Kindly clarify. Tnx
Sir,1. Project is launched by following steps. . SOPC is built using Quartus II . Bdf file created in quartus II and compiled. Program 'SOF' file on FPGA cyclone II board. NIOs II IDE launced thru SOPC builder then .PTF file selected of corresponding SOPC and 'hello' file program selected and then build the program to run on NIOS processor. 2. JTAG interface is used to connect to FPGA. 3. I dont undertandhow the debugger is rcognized. Thx
Hi there,okay first lets see if your debugger is recognized, but must be if you were able to download the sof file. In Nios-IDE choose the menu Run and click on "RunConfiguation" There should be a poitn Nios II Hardware and in best case an existing configuration, otherwise create one. When you click on your configuration and then on the tab "Target connection", there you should see your debugger.
changed run confg to nios hardware configuration , error was removedhowever program was not running (pause error) Reinstalled the Quartus7.2 , working fine !! thnx
Sir,Thanks for the help. I will be extending the same design for the RTOS ( ucos ) and then building application layer using TCP/Ip stack of the ucos. This application layer I will used to query the Tripple Speed Ethernet design I have build. I hope u will support for this work also. Regards RSG
Sir,created new SOPC design with Nios 2 , jtag, sdram, pio, timer, sysid compiled and built successfully on Cyclone II.However run error Pausing Target processor : not responding Went through faq , but cud not solve the problem plz suggest soln
Hi,please try to provide more detailed description of what your doing. So let me assume that your JTAG-Adapter wasn't able to find your HW. Clcik on run and open your Run Configurations... Under NIOS II Hardware there should be your device listet, choose it and change to tab Target connection, there should now be your jatag adapter visible under Processors and Byte Stream Device, if not click on refrech connections. Good luck
Siri am trying Nios II Hello program on the said SOPC builder setup and using CycloneII device 1.device not available in main tab 2.Refreshed jtag cable and jtag device (EP2C35 ) in Target connection tab problem not solved:( plz help
Hi there,if there's no device recognized in the main tab, how did u come to refresh the connection? First create device: Go back to Run Configuration... Select Nios II Hardware Click on "New launch configuration" (the icon looks like a blank paper with a plus on it) Then you define a project name and choose your .elf while, which you build. After that it should run
Sir,refresh connection available in the Target connection tab i think i hv selected whatever u said In Run Dialog box LHS i select NiosII Hardware, rt click, i get New/Duplicate/Delete click New , i get hello_world_small1_Nios II hw configuration RHS i get Main tab---- project:hello_world_small1 NiosII elf : Release/hello_world_small1.elf ptf file : C:\altera\72sp3\quartus\rt\sysrt.ptf In Target Connection tab---- jtag cable: USB-Blaster 0 jtag device: (EP2C35 ) Nios II commn device:jtag_uart(stdin/stdout/stderr)
Hi,glad to hear you fixed your problem. Could you provide a detailed description on how you fixed the error, so that other users facing similar problems could get some help here. Have a nice week end
The names of the input and output pins in the .bdf filewere matched with the .csv file pin names and compiled! Simple problem but took time to detect since i had used the software after a gap of about one year Regards ,
