MAX1000: Implementation of soft core "NiosII" from Intel FPGA

The guide is the perfect starting point for first time implementing a soft core into an FPGA and program this core with standard ucontroller language C.
It will show you how easy it is to run a soft core in a MAX10 FPGA.

PS: The used USB Blaster programming tool and driver, is licensed by Arrow Electronics and in combination Trenz Electronic products. It is not allowed to use this driver/IP for own products/purposes. Please read the Arrow license agreement carefully.

I'm having some troubles with MAX1000 and NiosII.
I noticed that touching the board or plastic headers shell causes resets both in demo at startup (everytime) and in some of my projects (rarely).

I followed your guide, with the only difference that I added SDRAM support instead of On-Chip RAM because memory was not enough for my pourposes. At first, for some weeks, I had no problems. Now I have the board continuously resetting after loading my code from Eclipse.
I also tried with an external pullup on reset pin or moving the reset on another GPIO. In second case execution time is longer but hangs anyway after a while (5 ~ 6 s).

I can't get any info from the debugger, maybe because I'm looking in the wrong place.

Thank you for any info.
