when i try to run as NIOS II hardware, i am getting this error,Using cable "USB-Blaster [USB-0]", device 1, instance 0x00 Pausing target processor: not responding. Resetting and trying again: FAILED Leaving target processor paused how can i correct it, Its running in the simulator though (NIOS instruction set simulator)
It is possible that your processor is held in reset at the firmware level. Make sure your processor has a valid clock and that the reset polarity is correct.
The compilation messages indicate that you don't have the license for the Nios CPU. This means Quartus generates a time limited .sof file for evaluation purposes. When you configure the FPGA you will see an OpenCore window saying you are in evaluation mode. Do not close this window or the Nios CPU will stop working and you can get this "non responding" error.
Did you modify the example in any way? Check epsecially the clock and reset input. The reset is active low so it must be high for the system to work. You can verify that the clock is running by using signaltap, either by monitoring the clock signal itself, or by using it as the clock in signaltap (it will say "waiting for clock" if the clock isn't toggling).
what these lines show ?Warning (10034): Output port "LEDR" at myfirst_niosii.v(44) has no driver Warning (10034): Output port "FL_ADDR" at myfirst_niosii.v(47) has no driver Warning (10034): Output port "FL_CE_N" at myfirst_niosii.v(48) has no driver Warning (10034): Output port "FL_OE_N" at myfirst_niosii.v(50) has no driver Warning (10034): Output port "FL_RST_N" at myfirst_niosii.v(51) has no driver Warning (10034): Output port "FL_WE_N" at myfirst_niosii.v(53) has no driver Warning (10034): Output port "FL_WP_N" at myfirst_niosii.v(54) has no driver
hello,i am currently working on DE2 70 altera kit for my final year project and want to send messages using ethernet port. i am working using SOPC builder. Firstly i want to run a small program(eg. LEDs). i have created a NIOS II system using SOPC builder, then i have used altera monitor program to compile a c program. system got downloaded on to the board but when i m trying to load it i am getting the following error. Usingcable "USB-Blaster [USB-0]", device1,instance 0x00 Pausingtargetprocessor: not responding. Resetting and trying again: FAILED Leavingtargetprocessorpaused please kindly help me to sort this error.
Can you check the polarity of your reset signal? The reset input on an SOPC/QSYS design is active low, so it needs to be '1' for the CPU to work. I don't know the polarity of the KEY signals on the DE2 board.
I had a similar problem that was solved by making sure the NIOS reset output (jtag_debug_module_reset) is connected to the reset inputs of the other components, including the NIOS itself (reset_n). The loading process was unable to pause the processor until this change was made.
I too got similar error and resolved it by making sure that my Clock and Reset pins at the top level were correctly assigned (Pin Planner/ Assignment Editor). Once fixed, this resolved the problem.So it appears, for such messages, one must look closely at the top level (including Nios / Connected components) Clock and Reset connections.
