IP Product: RLDRAM II Controller with UniPHY

Error: add_fileset_file: No such file C:/<temp directory>/qsys/<UniPHY core>_p0_sequencer_rom.hex

Description

Due to a problem in the Quartus II software version 10.0 and later, the generation of a UniPHY core may error out with the above message.

Error: add_fileset_file: No such file C:/<temp directory>/qsys/<UniPHY core>_p0_sequencer_rom.hex

Workaround/Fix

The workaround is to open the <Quartus II installation directory>/nios2eds/bin/elf2hex file and edit the first line from

#!/bin/sh

to

#!/bin/bash

This issue has been fixed in the Quartus II software version 13.1.
