I am currently transitioning a Quartus 8.0 (subscription edition) project to Quartus 12.1 (web edition).
I am facing couple of problems:
- The NIOS II Eclipse tool does not run the code correctly. I see the following error: Pausing target processor: not responding Resetting and trying again: FAILED Leaving target processor paused
I searched for this error and saw a lot of replies talking about generating the BSP using the BSP editor and not the context menu in Eclipse. I tried both methods and this problem is not resolved. One thing I have observed is that when I create a Hello_world_small project from scratch, it runs on NiosII. Once I start adding my code or modify the file to start using system.h the project does not run on NiosII and I see the error above.
- In my SOPC builder I am using the DDR2 module and I don't know if this core requires the subscription edition to work correctly.
Please advise if you have seen similar issues.
P.S: I have posted similar thread on the Altera forum as well
