DE10-Nano JTAG

Greetings,

I am following the tutorial using JTAG to debug "blink" project:

https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/articles/debug-intel-fpga-hardware-with-system-...

From the System Console Tcl:

% set d_path [lindex [get_service_paths device] 0 ]
/devices/5CSEBA6(.|ES)|5CSEMA6|..@2#USB-1#DE-SoC
% device_download_sof $d_path output_files/blink.sof

% set jd_path [lindex [get_service_paths jtag_debug] 0]

% jtag_debug_sense_clock $jd_path

error: jtag_debug_sense_clock: The path is not valid.
while executing
"jtag_debug_sense_clock $jd_path"
% jtag_debug_loop $jd_path [list 1 2 4 8 15 16]
error: jtag_debug_loop: The path is not valid.
while executing
"jtag_debug_loop $jd_path [list 1 2 4 8 15 16]"
%

I did install D2XX drivers from here:

https://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htm

Please note that the first part completed successfully, The amber D5 CONFIG LED did come up:

<quote>
Program the Intel® FPGA
To program the Intel FPGA device, we first need to get a service path to the device. We will assign that path to a variable called d_path by typing the following command:

set d_path [lindex [get_service_paths device] 0 ]

Download the SOF file to the device by typing the following command:

device_download_sof $d_path output_files/blink.sof

The amber D5 CONFIG LED should be illuminated once the commands above complete
</quote>

Please advise if the JTAG is broken or did I miss something.

Hi,


Is there any error message after you have executed "device_download_sof $d_path output_files/blink.sof"?


Can you check if the SOF file is actually in the folder?

Also, have you executed this command? get_service_paths device? Is there response from it? This is to determine is JTAG is connected properly.


Thank You.


Regards,

Bruce

Hi Bruce,

 

Please read my posting again, I wrote in there:

May i know are you using USB Blaster I / II? If using II, can you change the TCK frequency to 6 MHz?

Also, can you please confirm if the device part number is selected correctly in quartus before you compile the sof file?
