Hi, 

 

1. May I know which FPGA you are using? 

2. Which Configuration Device you are using?

3. Can you perform only Erase function? can complete successfully?

4. SFL version is generated by the same Quartus version you are using now?

 

regards,

Farabi

Hello Farabi,

 

Sorry for late response. I have figured out the root cause and solved the issue. The root cause was that I removed erase command sequence from the erase flow in the flash configuration while converting .pof file to .jic file. Because the flash was empty and I didn't want to erase the flash. After I adding back correct erase command sequence in the erase flow and did the conversion (.pof to .jic), then the problem is gone.

 

Below are the answers to your questions fyi:

1. May I know which FPGA you are using? - Cyclone 10 GX FPGA

2. Which Configuration Device you are using? - I am using Infineon QSPI flash as AS configuration device. 

3. Can you perform only Erase function? can complete successfully? - As the root cause I described above, it was related to Erase function.

4. SFL version is generated by the same Quartus version you are using now? - Yes.

 

You can close this ticket now.

 

Thanks!

Yong
