Document Table of Contents Regenerating Files, Recompiling Design and Configuring the FPGA

Perform the following steps to regenerate HDL files, compile, generate programming file, and configure the FPGA:

  1. Download the reference design file to your local project directory.
  2. Launch the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.
  3. On the File menu, click New Project Wizard.
  4. On the New Project Wizard page, open Design Template Installation. Select the design template you want install. Click Next, then Finish.
  5. Note:

    The reference design provided does not enable Signal Tap Logic Analyzer in the Intel® Quartus® Prime project. Remove the following commands in jesd204b_ed.sdc file to avoid warnings if you do not compile the design with the provided Signal Tap file:

    • Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard Edition
      • u_jesd204b_ed_qsys|jesd204b_subsystem_0|jesd204b_duplex0|g_xcvr_native_insts[*]|tx_clkout \
      • u_jesd204b_ed_qsys|jesd204b_subsystem_0|jesd204b_duplex1|g_xcvr_native_insts[*]|tx_clkout \
    • Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition
      • u_jesd204b_ed_qsys|jesd204b_subsystem_0|jesd204b_duplex0|jesd204b_duplex0|g_xcvr_native_insts[*]|tx_clkout \
      • u_jesd204b_ed_qsys|jesd204b_subsystem_0|jesd204b_duplex1|jesd204b_duplex1|g_xcvr_native_insts[*]|tx_clkout \
    To include the Signal Tap file into Intel® Quartus® Prime project, navigate to the Assignments menu and select Settings. Click on the Signal Tap Logic Analyzer under Category, and then check the Enable Signal Tap Logic Analyzer checkbox. Browse the stp1.stp file (located at /stp directory) and hit OK button.
  6. To regenerate HDL files and compile the design with or without Signal Tap file,
    1. Open the Intel® FPGA GPIO parameter editor (se_outbuf_1bit.qsys) and click Generate HDL.
    2. Repeat step a. to generate HDL files for jesd204b_ed_qsys.qsys and dl_count.qsys.
    3. Once the Platform Designer generation are done for all system files, navigate to the Processing menu and select Start Compilation.
  7. Ensure the following:
    1. The Intel® FPGA Download Cable II driver are installed on the host computer.
    2. The board is powered.
    3. No other running application is uses the JTAG chain.
  8. On the Tools menu, click Programmer.
  9. Click Auto Detect to display the devices in the JTAG chain and select a device.
  10. Right click and select Change File. Then, select the appropriate jesd204b_ed.sof file from the <project directory>/output_files and click Open.
  11. Turn on the Program/Configure option for the .sof file.
  12. Click Start to download the .sof file to the FPGA.
