Hi 

 

i have de2-70 and quartus 2 10.1. and Nİos 2 10.1. 

 

i am trying to create embedded system using sopc builder. But When i compile with sopc builder it gives errors.  

 

i do all instructions on this video --> youtube "Design and Program a Computing Engine Using DE2-70 Altera FPGA Board"  

 

In this video, "Quartus II 9.1 SOPC builder" used.  

 

The difference is my quartus 2 and nios 2 version. For DE2-70 board which version of quartus must i use?  

 

Thanks for help...

Yes. "it gives errors" is too vague as a description of your problem to give you an answer.

Could you post a screenshot of your SOPC builder project? 

Does SOPC builder actually say that? "never heard of alignment" is a really strange error message.

I'm sorry, I have really no clue on this one, I've never seen that kind of cryptic error message before. How is the JTAG debug module connected to the CPU? IIRC both the instruction and data masters must be connected to it. Could you show another screenshot with all the connections?

well. 

 

i think it is about licence. But altera says for this kind of design no licence required. 

i sappose to this is not true.  

 

So my friend has subcribe edition can generate succesfully.  

 

Thanks.
