9. Document Revision History for the P-Tile Avalon® Streaming Intel® FPGA IP for PCI Express* User Guide
|Document Version||Intel® Quartus® Prime Version||IP Version||Changes|
Added Riviera* to the list of supported simulators in the Features section.
Updated the Overview section of Debug Toolkit to describe the dynamic switching between the User Avalon Memory-mapped Reconfiguration interface and the System Console-based Debug Toolkit when the latter is enabled.
Updated the block diagram in the Overview section of Debug Toolkit to show the addition of an arbitration multiplexer inside the P-tile Debug Toolkit module.
Moved the signal surprise_down_err_o from the Power Management interface to the Hard IP Status interface.
Updated Completion buffer size values in the Completion Buffer Size section. Also updated the examples of Completion buffer entries consumed by Memory Read requests. Added a suggested flow diagram that the Application logic can follow to track the Completion buffer entries and schedule NP requests to the IP accordingly.
Removed the sys_aux_pwr_det_i signal from the Hot Plug Interface. This signal is now in the Power Management Interface.
Updated the list of signals in the Power Management Interface section.
Updated the timing diagrams in the Configuration Registers Access section.
Added the instructions on how to use the Hard IP Reconfiguration Interface to enable and read ECRC and LCRC error event counters to the Additional Debug Tools section.
Added 450 MHz as the maximum application clock frequency for Gen4 x4 and Gen4 x8 modes for Intel® Stratix® 10 DX devices.
Updated the lists of parameters for the TX path and RX path in the Debug Toolkit.
Added a note clarifying that RP and TLP Bypass modes are not supported by the Debug Toolkit in this release.
Added some signals to the Power Management Interface section: p#_sys_aux_pwr_det_i, apps_ready_entr_l23_i and app_xfer_pending_i.
Moved VirtIO parameters under the PCI Express and PCI Capabilities Parameters section.
Updated the description of how the IP responds to transactions addressed to a function being reset by FLR in the Function Level Reset (FLR) section.
Updated the timing diagram in the Hard IP Reconfiguration Interface section.
Updated the signal descriptions in the Power Management Interface section.
Added signals p<n>_cii_vf_num_o[10:0] and p<n>_cii_wr_vf_active_o to the Configuration Intercept Interface (EP Only) section.
Updated the description for signal flr_completed_vf_i in the Function-Level Reset (FLR) Interface section.
Updated the offsets and address ranges for Table 118 and Table 124 in the Configuration Space Registers Appendix chapter.
Added a note in the Top-Level Settings section stating that the independent reset feature will only be supported in a future release of Intel® Quartus® Prime.
|2021.02.18||20.4||4.0.0||Replaced pin_perst_n with p<n>_pin_perst_n in the Table in section Signal Tap II Logic Analyzer.|
Updated the Hard IP Mode options in the Top-Level Settings section.
Added Function-Level Reset (FLR) for PF and VF timing diagrams to the Function-Level Reset (FLR) section.
Added parameters to enable the independent resets for the x8x8 bifurcated mode to the Parameters chapter.
Added a note specifying the default value of the Extended Tag field in the Device Capabilities register to the table in the SR-IOV Supported Features List section.
Updated the description of the p0_flr_completed_pf_i[7:0] signals in the Function-Level Reset (FLR) Interface (EP Only) section.
Updated the table Port Mode Options in TLP Bypass in the Top-Level Settings section to clarify the combinations in which TLP Bypass can be enabled or disabled when multiple ports are available.
Updated the directions of signals in the Avalon-ST TX Interface section to match the signal directions in the block symbol.
Added descriptions for the Device Serial Number tab, the ACS tab to the Parameters chapter.
Updated the description of the p0_flr_rcvd_pf_o[7:0] signal bus in the Function-Level Reset (FLR) Interface section.
Removed configurations that require the Adapter (Gen4 x8 512-bit and Gen4 x4 256-bit) from the Top-Level Settings section because they are not supported in the 20.2 release of Intel® Quartus® Prime.
Added description for the Link Inspector in the Debug Toolkit chapter.
Added support for the Modelsim simulator to the Features section.
Added the lane reversal and polarity inversion support to the Features section.
Updated the bit ranges for the Next Capability Offset and Version fields in the Intel-Defined VSEC Capability Registers section.
Removed the Enable independent pin_perst parameter from the Avalon® Parameters section and the reset pin_perst_2_n from the Interface Reset Signals section. The independent pin_perst option is not supported in the 20.2 release of Intel® Quartus® Prime.
|2020.04.30||20.1||2.0.0||Added clarification that VCS is the only simulator supported in the 20.1 release of Intel® Quartus® Prime. Also added a note stating that PIPE mode simulations are not supported in this release.|
