BeMicro SDK Installation

  1. “Quartus II Web-Edition”. Select “Cyclon IV E Family” as target during installation.
    • With these free Altera development tools, if the installation file has about the same size, the service package contain a new full version. The update does not patch the old version, but is a fresh install and must be installed in a separate directory.
  2. Install “Nios II Embedded Design Suite (EDS)” in the same directory as “Quartus II Web-Edition”.
    • Else you get the error message during installation of “NiosII Embedded Design Suite (EDS)”, after the installation of “Quartus II Web-Edition”: “The specified path ('c:\altera\10.1') does not contain a Quartus II bin directory. Nios II Embedded Design Suite needs to install into the same directory level as Quartus II. Please specify a valid Quartus II installation directory”.
    • “Nios II Embedded Design Suite (EDS)” is a full version, there is no commercial subscription version !
  3. Plug the “BeMicro SDK” USB stick in your Windows PC, and point Windows for driver installation to the directory “C:\altera\quartus\drivers\usb-blaster\”.
    • Don´t point to a deeper directory !
    • Warning: Win7 might be shipped with a non-functional outdated driver ?!
  4. Use the “Board Support Package” ( C/C++ header files, drivers,..) to create your applications. You can access the software tools by classical command line commands and by Eclipse.
