I want to configure/program an Altera FLEX EPF10K30ETC144-3 + EPC2LC20 using files I've generated using Quartus for the same devices. I want to use JTAG to interface to the devices using my ByteBlaster II. I have carefully followed all Altera directions in generating the files and designing the circuit with the devices on a PCB. My 2 questions are:1) What is the difference between "configuring" and "programming" in this context?
2) What file should I use to configure/program? .sof or .pof or both?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I inherited the code and PCB from another team that were using everything successfully. All I'm trying to do is reprogram a new FPGA on the same PCB with the same files. Unfortunately I do not have any contact with that team any more for help.
