2.1. Fabric Network-On-Chip (NoC) in Intel Agilex® 7 M-Series M20K Blocks

The Intel Agilex® 7 M-Series introduces the Fabric Network-on-Chip (NoC) feature which provides a dedicated and faster read or write access to and from the M20K memory blocks. This feature is applicable only for the M20K blocks.
  • The Fabric NoC allows the read data from external memories, such as double data rate (DDR) memory and High Bandwidth Memory (HBM), to be written to the M20K blocks.
  • You must be aware of the following limitations when using the Fabric NoC feature:
    • ECC is not supported.
    • Force-to-Zero is not supported.
    • Read address register and data output register must be clocked by the same clock.

To use the Fabric NoC in your M20K memory block, instantiate the NoC Initiator Intel® FPGA IP and state the number of the M20K groups that you need. For more information, refer to the Intel Agilex® 7 FPGA Network-on-Chip (NoC) User Guide (Intel RDC item #747803).
