I have an eSOC developement board from DeVry with an Altera Max 7000 serie CPLD chip on it.
The EPM7128SLC84-15 to be exact...
I never took the course for which I bought it & I'm trying to teach mysel to use it now but I cannot seem to get Altera's MaxPlusII software t see/recognize the board.
DeVry's site for the board is
The MaxPlus program seems to want it to be an xxxxxx-6 (not xxxx-15). An time I try to connect, program, erase, et cetera the chip, I get an erro message about not recognizing the device or no device in the socket. Also SUPPOSEDLY there is a test program preinstalled on the chip but it does no seem to work.
I added the chip as noted in Altera's documention to the system hardwar (it's a win2k driver, but they always seem fine in XP anyway).
Am I just an idiot who doesn't know what he's doing or should I mayb assume the chip is bad & try the whole process again after replacing it?
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
