Hello,i'm new in this forum but i have a problem to configure the HDL Workflow Advisor from MATLAB with the information from my FPGA (EP4CGX15BF14). In the attachement you can see a picture of the hdl workflow advisor and the fields i have to fill in. I don't use the MEX II, just the Cyclone IV GX FPGA. I have no idea after which clocks and ports i have to search in the manual (you can see the manual in the attachemnt). I am very thankful for help or some tips. best regards Niko
Hi,thx for the information. I added a zipped folder with the picture. Mostly i am interested in the clock and reset input ports/pins. Maybe i can not read the manual correctly but i am not sure if the ports/pins in the HDL_Workflow_Advisor.png are correct because i can't find pins just for the FPGA. best regards
You can find pin information called pin-out on altera.com.Go https://www.altera.com/products/fpga/cyclone-series/cyclone-iv/support.html Click 'Device Pin-Outs' Click 'Cyclone IV' Search 'EP4CGX15' and click Pin-Outs (XLS) Your device 'F14' package has 169 pins, so refer to column F 'F169'. I hate this translation :( Accoding to the spreadsheet, M7 pin is located in Bank B4, the function of the pin is CLK14 or DIFFCLK_6p. This is the best choice for clocks. I always uses differential I/O standard for clocks to avoid unexpected behavior caused by glitch on the clock, so I use DIFFCLK_*p pins. D10 is a general I/O pin, it should be good. R1 and R4 cannot be found in the spreadsheet. They must be changed to proper pin locations. I hope this helps you.
