|Name||Remote System Upgrade (RSU) Lab - DECA Version|
|Description||This lab will walk you through creating and programming all of the files needed to perform a remote system upgrade on a Max 10 device. You will start off by programming an external QSPI flash device with the Nios II firmware that will receive data over UART and reprogram the flash. You will then generate and program the factory image for the device. Lastly, a new application image will be created with updated functionality and the user will be walked through remotely upgrading the device with this new image.|
The design used in this lab is based off of the design created in AN741: Remote System Upgrade for Max 10 FPGA Devices over UART with the Nios II Processor with some slight modifications to the source code to make it easier to read and use.
|Development Kit||Arrow MAX 10 DECA|
|Installation Package|| Download|
Note: After downloading the design example, you must prepare the design template. The file you downloaded is of the form of a <project>.par file which contains a compressed version of your design files (similar to a .qar file) and metadata describing the project. The combination of this information is what constitutes a <project>.par file. In releases 16.0 or newer, you can simply double click on the <project>.par file and Quartus will launch that project.
Browse to the <project>.par file you downloaded, click next, followed by Finish, and your design template will be installed and displayed in the Project Navigator pane in Quartus.
Note: When a design is stored in the Design Store as a design template, it has been previously regression tested against the stated version of Quartus software. The regression ensures the design template passes analysis/synthesis/fitting/assembly steps in the Quartus design flow.
At the command-line, type the following command:
Once the process completes, then type:
