3.4. Consider Power-Up State and Memory Initialization
|Read memory contents*
|*Refer to the .mif for the memory contents. If there is no .mif, the power-up value is Zero (cleared).
By default, the Intel® Quartus® Prime software initializes the embedded memory block in Intel Agilex® 7 devices to zero, unless you specify in the memory contents in a .mif.
The MLAB and M20K embedded memory blocks support initialization with a .mif. Even if a memory is pre-initialized (for example, using a .mif), the memory still powers up with its output cleared.
