  • quartus revision is changed!

  • Designate all graphics and pictures with a number and a description, Use "Scroll Title" macro

    • Use "Scroll Title" macro for pictures and table labels. Figure number must be set manually at the moment (automatically enumeration is planned by scrollPDF)
      • Figure template (note: inner scroll ignore/only only with drawIO object):

        Scroll Title
        anchorFigure_xyz
        titleText


        Scroll Ignore

        Create DrawIO object here: Attention if you copy from other page, use


        Scroll Only

        image link to the generate DrawIO PNG file of this page. This is a workaround until scroll pdf export bug is fixed



      • Table template:

        • Layout macro can be use for landscape of large tables
        • Set column width manually(can be used for small tables to fit over whole page) or leave empty (automatically)

    • Basic Design Steps

    • Add/ Remove project specific description


    Note

    Reference Design is available with and without prebuilt files. It's recommended to use TE prebuilt files for first launch.

    Trenz Electronic provides a tcl based built environment based on Quartus Design Flow.

    See also:


    The Trenz Electronic FPGA Reference Designs are TCL-script based projects. To create a project, open a project or program a device execute "create_project_win.cmd" on Windows OS and "create_project_linux.sh" on Linux OS.

    TE Scripts are only needed to generate the quartus project, all other additional steps are optional and can also executed by Intel Quartus/SDK GUI. For currently Scripts limitations on Win and Linux OS see: Project Delivery - Intel devices → Currently limitations of functionality

    1. Open create_project_win.cmd/create_project_linux.sh:

    ...

    1. Image Added
    2. Select Board in "Board selection"
    3. Click on "Create project" button to create project

    • Export PDF to download, if quartus revision is changed!

    • Designate all graphics and pictures with a number and a description, Use "Scroll Title" macro

      • Use "Scroll Title" macro for pictures and table labels. Figure number must be set manually at the moment (automatically enumeration is planned by scrollPDF)
        • Figure template (note: inner scroll ignore/only only with drawIO object):

          Scroll Title
          anchorFigure_xyz
          titleText


          Scroll Ignore

          Create DrawIO object here: Attention if you copy from other page, use


          Scroll Only

          image link to the generate DrawIO PNG file of this page. This is a workaround until scroll pdf export bug is fixed



        • Table template:

          • Layout macro can be use for landscape of large tables
          • Set column width manually(can be used for small tables to fit over whole page) or leave empty (automatically)

        • Scroll Title
          anchorTable_xyz

    • Add/ Remove project specific description


    Note

    Reference Design is available with and without prebuilt files. It's recommended to use TE prebuilt files for first launch.

    Trenz Electronic provides a tcl based built environment based on Quartus Design Flow.

    See also:


    The Trenz Electronic FPGA Reference Designs are TCL-script based projects. To create a project, open a project or program a device execute "create_project_win.cmd" on Windows OS and "create_project_linux.sh" on Linux OS.

    TE Scripts are only needed to generate the quartus project, all other additional steps are optional and can also executed by Intel Quartus/SDK GUI. For currently Scripts limitations on Win and Linux OS see: Project Delivery - Intel devices → Currently limitations of functionality

    1. Open create_project_win.cmd/create_project_linux.sh:
      'Create Project' GUI exampleImage Added
    2. Select Board in "Board selection"
    3. Click on "Create project" button to create project
      1. (optional for manual changes) Select correct quartus installation path in "<project folder>/settings/design_basic_settings.tcl"

    Note

    Check Module and Carrier TRMs for proper HW configuration before you try any design.

    MAX10 Flash

    1. Connect the Module to USB-Port
    2. Open create_project_win.cmd/create_project_linux.sh
    3. Select correct board in "Board selection"
    4. Click on "Program device" button
      1. if prebuilt files are available: select "Program prebuilt file"
      2. using own generated programming file: select "Program other file" and click on "Browse ..." to open own generated programming file
      3. (optional) click on "Open programmer GUI" to program device with Quartus programmer GUI
    5. Click on "Start program device" button

    JTAG

    Not used on this example.

    Usage

    1. Prepare Hardware like described on section Programming
    2. Connect UART USB (most cases same as JTAG)

    UART

    1. Open Serial Console (e.g. PuTTY)
      1. COM Port: Win OS see device manager, Linux OS see  dmesg | grep tty  (UART is *USB1)
      2. Speed: 115200
    2. Press reset button
    3. Console output depends on used Software project, see Software Design - SDK#Application
