How to program a FPGA cyclone IV EP4CE15F17I7?

I want to program a FPGA cyclone IV EP4CE15F17I7 but I do not know how to do it. I would like to know how I could do it also how to get a source file of one FPGA for programing another with the same file.

Hi,

 

Are you using a Development kit?

  1. Check which configuration scheme is used on your board.
  2. Refer below user-guide for programming steps session 4.1.

To get source files from flash, You have you use the flash loader to establish a bridge between flash and cable. Refer below link

After loading flash loader (sof) in FPGA auto-detect and use the Examine feature in the Quartus® II Programmer to read back the .pof. You can then save this file and use it to program other EPCS devices

Hi,

 

I am not using any Development kit, I have two FPGA EP4CE15F17I7 in other board and I want to know if I can program it because I read that this FPGA do not have a ROM memory internally and I do not know how to program if only have a RAM memory. Could you tell me if the information I read is correct? or where can I get more information about it?

I am checking your information but I am a new to program FPGAs.

Hi Juan,

 

Yes, FPGA do not have a ROM memory internally but we can use external rom like EPCS device as flash.

 

Now you have to read the configuration image (.pof) from external flash.
