Nios II /e working and /f not working

Hello,

I made a very simple design like "hello world" that is perfectly running with the Nios II /e economy.

It takes place on a Max10 FPGA (Terasic DE10-Lite from Terasic).

When I switch to Nios II /f fast, I can compile etc, but when I lauch the C code, nothing happen.

Processor lauch but nothing appears in the console by JTAG.

 

I haven't got license (Quartus Prime Lite).

Could it explains why Nios II /f does't run ?

Do I have to buy a license to run Nios II /f ?

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

The Nios II economy processor core, software tools, and device drivers are offered free of charge.along with Quartus lite.

but to use Nios II /f  you require license.

Hello,

Did you download the time limited .sof file to your board after compilation? (i assume you do not have a licensed version of Quartus)

I had the same issue, I looked for 1 whole day to find the culprit.

Best Regards

Johi.
