Configuring Altera FLEX10KE using EPC2 device
I'm having serious problems configuring my FPGA using EPC2. We have
designed the circuit exactly as stated in the Altera datasheet and
even played around with the pullups and buffering that's recommended.
To be more specific, We have a board with a FLEX10KE
(EPF10K200SBC356-1) and a EPC2LC20 for in-system configuration. We
also have provided for direct Byteblaster configuration using a
connector (using the same path towards the FPGA and selecting between
them through enabling/disabling a buffer). Finally, we have a JTAG
connector by which we can configure the FPGA directly...Programming one page of an Altera configuration device
Can I program only one page of a EPC16 Altera configuration device via
JTAG ? In particular, can I program only the page that I have selected
with PGM(2:0) ? I have to use this for remote update.
...Problem programming Altera flex 10k100 & EPC2
I have a working prototype board from yesteryear with a Flex
10K100GC503-3 FPGA and an EPC2L120 configuration device on it. I
realize these are geriatric parts by todays standards, but if I can get
this board working, it will do what I need. Altera is no help -
pointing out that the part was EOL'ed in 1993.
This board definitely worked when it was put into storage, though I
used an older copy of MaxPlusII to program it at the time. I created
the EDIF files then using Synplicity 7.2.3. At that time, I had no
problem either programming the FPGA directly with the .sof or the EPC2
with the .p...programming Altera AS Configuration Device without Byteblaster II
Do you have an Altera ByteblasterMV an do you want to programm the
Configuration Device EPCS1 or EPCS4 for Cyclone ??
Make a new VisualBasic Form with one ProgrammButton Command1 and one
add the source code below
download the InpOut32.DLL from http://www.logix4u.cjb.net/
Modfify your Byteblaster/ByteblasterMV:
connect PIN4 of your Printer SUBD25 Connector to PIN17 (2A4) of the 74HC244.
Use the same Pull Up Resistors like on the other Pins. Disconnect the Pin
connect PIN3 of 74HC244 to Pin8 of the JTAG Connector.
Connect PIN4 of the JTAG to PIN6 to disable the...Altera Cyclone Programming device programming
The Altera Cyclone Programming device EPCS1 are shown
to be programmed in the AS mode requiring an own connector.
Since the JTAG was never officially declared outdated,
I'd expect a way to program the cyclone plus the EPCS1 in JTAG
mode. I wasn't able to find it yet though.

The Cyclone device is programmable using only the proprietary mechanism.
It does not support 1149.1 or 1532 based programming.

I have programmed EPLD only once using MAX+PLUS II, with necessary
hardware already connected with PC.
Now, I am in the situation that I need to figure out what is needed
and how to set-up system to program MAX 3032ALC. I have an MPU, but it
is 68 pins. I have seen some sort of adapters of different pins, could
they be used somehow on 68 pin MPU? Could anybody point me to
documents describing all these (programming with .pof file)?
I also need to set-up for In-System Programming, so at later stage
that would become helpful. I have never done that. I need guideline
for that too.

The mathwork documentation has tutorial how to set up a user configuration with window display and GUI: http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/toolbox/distcomp/f5-16141.html#f5-16540
However, I am working with the matlab console. Does anyone know how to define a user configuration?
Thanks in advance,
We need to program Altera PLDs on the end of a production line.
Using the full IDE involves re-registering the stuff every 3 months, which
is impossibly awkward at the factory.
Does anyone know if there is a simpler program-only utility which doesn't
require continuous re-licensing?

I'm looking for the the data sheet on an Altera EPC2LC20.
Can't find in on Altera web site. And a google search didn't uncover anything.
It did direct me fo web pages but no data sheets for this device.
Anyone got a copy?
have a look at
and especially volume 2.

Hi newsgroup users,
can someone tell me how to define the programming time of a EP1C12 Cyclone
when using PL-BYTEBLASTER2 cable in comparison to PL-USB-BLASTER cable?
Thank you for your help.

Wrong newsgroup, try comp.arch.fpga.
