NIOS II issue with SBT while creating a HEX file

I am creating a NIOS II system and want to boot it on a serial flash device and while making target to generate the hex file for the serial flash it creates only for the on-chip memory.hex. I don't know what is the problem with Eclipse or ALTERA.

Please help

Quartus creates a .sof file (for the Quartus Prime Programmer over JTAG) that you usually have to convert to .pof file to place in a flash for programming the device. Can you provide detail on the steps you've gone through and what you're trying to accomplish?

Hi,

  1. If Reset vector & exception vector are pointing to on-chip ram you will see only on-chip memory.hex
  2. mem_init_generate target also generates a Quartus Prime IP file (meminit.qip) which can be added to Quartus project and recompile to generate sof and convert to pof/jic. or You can use hex and sof file to generate the pof/jic file.

Hello,

you didn't get my question. I make the reset vector to spi flash and exception vector to onchip memory. while go to make target to create the hex file, the Eclipse built only for On-chip memory.

there is something missing in the .tcl

Thanks
