Just a question, when I program the .pof file to the fpga flash, do I lose the DE1 welcome screen ?

How do you restore the screen if wanted, say if you sell the board ?

Thanks
Frank

Yes, you do. That welcome screen core also handles communication with the DE1 Control Panel application which is used to the program the DE1's user flash memory.

The DE1 Control Panel application comes with a .sof and a .pof so you can temporarily or permanently restore the core.

If you have the CD that came with the DE1, it's on there. If you don't have it, you should be able to download it from: http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/ ... 3&PartNo=4
(You'll have to sign up though.)

Please drop me a line if you get the control panel working. I recently bought the DE1 board as well but I can't get it going. It always complains about that I should install Quartus. I tried control panel 2.0.1 (on my CD) and 2.0.2 with Quartus 13.0sp1. According to the manual it should work with 12.0 and above. Sysinternals process monitor doesn't show anything unusual just that it can find the Quartus dll.

Hi Wsoltys

I have quartus 9.1 sp2 install, have downloaded the control panel 2.0.2, only when i have the program / run switch in program position does the control panel app recognise that the board is plugged 1 but only reaches 81% before coming up with a fail message. shall try other versions of Quartus!

regards

Frank

Got it working with control panel version 1.0 from the v08 CD: http://www.terasic.com/downloads/cd-rom/de1/.
But you need to program the .sof manually before using it.
