I'm using Q13.1 and run Nios from EPCQ (EPCS/EPCQx1 Serial Flash Controller installed in Qsys). Nios binary copied from EPCQ to DDR after power up. I generate jic file using Convert Programming File tool and everything works fine. So all offsets and setting is ok. But if I try to enable encryption in SOF properties, NIOS application not starting after power up. FPGA fabric still starts successfully. What might be reasone of this?
Hi, thanks for answer. I'm using hex file, which is generated like this:
#Create a flash image of your FPGA configuration file sof2flash --input=hw.sof --output=hw.flash --epcq --verbose #Note: We are using --epcq instead of --epcs here for EPCQ devices #Create a flash image of your NIOS II .elf file elf2flash --input=sw.elf --output=sw.flash --epcs --after=hw.flash –verbose #Create the .hex image of your Nios II software nios2-elf-objcopy --input-target srec --output-target ihexsw.flash sw.hex
