Hallo,we have a nasty problem with our new design. I tried it with several boards and the schematic is checked. The hardware seems fine. We use a Cyclon V 5CEBA4U19 device with a attached EPCQ32A Flash. When we programm the config directly via the .sof to the FPGA it works fine. This means the progress is 100% and Quartus says "Programmer operation was successfull" If I generate a .jic File to flash the EPCQ32A it fails. Progress stops at 89% and the error message is "Flash Loader IP not loaded on device 1" (see attached Images) It seems that already the SFL cannot programmed. https://alteraforum.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=15630&stc=1 Info (209060): Started Programmer operation at Thu Jun 21 11:17:09 2018 Info (209016): Configuring device index 1 Info (209017): Device 1 contains JTAG ID code 0x02B050DD Info (209007): Configuration succeeded -- 1 device(s) configured Error (209062): Flash Loader IP not loaded on device 1 Error (209012): Operation failed Info (209061): Ended Programmer operation at Thu Jun 21 11:17:15 2018 https://alteraforum.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=15629&stc=1 We tried 1000 of different options and videos and instructions, but nothing helps. - Windows 10 / Windows 7 - Quartus Prime Lite Edition 18.0 (also tried with 17.1) - JTAG via USB Blaster - Cyclon V 5CEBA4U19 - EPCQ32A - connected Signals EPCQ32A to the FPGA: D0-D4; DCLK; nCSO Can someone help?

Hi,1. Are you using Dev Kit? 2. How many devices are there in your JTAG chain? OR Are you programming to the correct device in the chain? Cross check the steps followed for generating the .Jic file. https://www.altera.com/content/dam/altera-www/global/en_us/pdfs/literature/an/an370.pdf if the .sof file can be configured via jtag successfully then it is not a power issue since jtag configuration is successful.
then it should be bitstream corruption. Suggestion 1. Monitor nStatus & CONF_DONE pins. 2. Try to program with .pof after loading the sfl image. Or check if you have selected correct EPCQ device. 3. Check the P/N from the board and confirm. Refer below link for troubleshooting. https://www.altera.com/support/support-resources/support-centers/devices/cfg-index/fpga-configuratio... Let me know if this has helped resolve the issue you are facing or if you need any further assistance. Best Regards, Anand Raj Shankar (This message was posted on behalf of Intel Corporation)
