It's been many years since I posted anything about FPGAs here, and I don't use Altera FPGAs myself so I don't know what Quartus II is capable of these days. With that disclaimer, I really doubt Quartus II software runs on a Raspberry Pi. Usually vendor software only runs on Intel architecture PCs, and sometimes only under Windows. GNU/Linux versions are often available, but only for Intel architecture PCs. The only FPGA software I know of that runs on Raspberry Pi is the open-source IceStorm tools (which support Lattice iCE40 FPGAs and perhaps some others now) and my own Flavia software which is at this time is only suitable for education.icyberns wrote: ↑Sat Jan 12, 2019 4:51 amHey so I am still wet behind my ears on the subject of Linux... Verilog.. FPGAs and programming in general.
My goal is to utilize the Quartus II Prime Lite free download software in order to program my Altera FPGA device on my Raspberry Pi 3 B+
It does not work I believe due to the OS Rasberian not being able to compile the .exe and setup file and I think that was mentioned in the chat.
What can I do to make it work or do I have to switch OS? Maybe Ubunto?
I am very interested in VDHL and the other things that you were talking about btw it is very interesting!
Any resources that you could give on the subject I would appreciate, or how to get started.
Right now I have all the gear of a professional soldier but have never seen battle!!
One of the best resources I know of for learning about FPGAs is element14's FPGA group: https://www.element14.com/community/groups/fpga-group. There are a number of very helpful people who participate there, including some who know Altera.
