Obtain a pof from MAX 10 internal flash?

Hi there, 

 

I had a .pof file that I programmed onto the MAX 10 awhile ago but I seem to have lost that file and my project. Is there a way to obtain that pof from the internal flash of Max 10 so I can program it onto my other MAX 10 designs? The CFM stores my Max 10 FPGA design, is there anyway I can obtain a .pof file from it? Thanks for your help.

Hi, 

 

You can just use the Examine operation in the Quartus programmer to read out the MAX 10 contents and save as a .pof file.

It's possible unless the MAX10 flash had been protected (Security Bit checked when programming it).

Thank you nyusof and FvM for the response. I managed to get it to work with the Examine operation.
