i want to start programming FPGA, i use the Terasic DE2-115 eval Board. I installed the USB-Blaster driver which is recognized in the Windows10 Device manager but i can't see it in the programming windows of the Quartus II 10.0 Web Edition.
Have you got an idea why it doesn't appear and how i can solve this issue?
Update drivers, check the USB blaster cable connection wit the board, check the visual inspection the board especially FPGA pins & refer the link below,
Try to check with Stand alone programmer,
Why don`t you use latest Quartus lite version?
Hi SStrell, yeah the device manager can detect the usb balster but not the Quartus II 10.0 or 12.0. I donwloaded the latest version of the USB blaster 16.0 but it still doesn't work.
Finally I installed the latest Quartus lite version 18.1. It can detect the ubs blaster 2 hardware, but unfortunately I can’t download my FPGA program, it failed.
I also got a lot of error message when running the the DE2_115_control_panel from the DE2-115_v.3.0.6_SystemCD folder.
Best regards !
Delete the 'db' & 'incremental_db' folder from your project directory.
Perform 'Full Compilation' in Quartus lite 18.1 & the try to program DE2_115 board.
please let me know if you have any different concern.
i solved the issue following theses steps :
1- Install the latest version of quartus Lite 18.1.
2- Download the latest version of DE2-115 CD from terasic website.
3- Change the environment variables to path the quartus installation folder.
