Using Quartus 14.1[64-bit web Edition] 

 

 

After programming .sof file, how to transfer it into MCS format, which can be loaded into flash chip? 

 

I tried converting .sof programming file to .jic file.  

 

While generating jic file, getting Error Message "Serial Flash Loader" is missing.  

 

 

Thanks

Hi Saras015, 

a MCS file format is associated with Xilinx ecosystem. It is necessary to use a POF for a flash device programming. A conversion SOF -> POF can be done in Quartus/File/Convert Programming File window. Other possibility is to use JAM/JBC or SVF files.
