3.1.3.1. Generating .rpd File for Intel® Arria® 10 and Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX Devices

To generate the .rpd file for Intel® Arria® 10 and Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX devices using the Convert Programming File tool, follow these steps:

  1. Specify the programming file type: POF
  2. Select the configuration device.
    • If the flash density is 256 Mb, select EPCQL256.
    • If the flash density is 512 Mb, select EPCQL512.
    • If the flash density is 1024 Mb, select EPCQL1024.
  3. Select mode: Active Serial x1 or Active Serial x4.
  4. For Advanced Options, check Advanced... > Disable EPCS/EPCQ ID check.
  5. Check Create config data RPD (Generate output_file_auto.rpd).
  6. Under Input files to convert, select the .sof file for your design.
    Intel recommends enabling compression for the .sof file to reduce the .rpd file size.
  7. Click Generate.
The generated <output_file>_auto.rpd file is the configuration bitstream to be programmed into the quad SPI flash using the Customizable Flash Programmer. The generated Programmer Object File (.pof) can be ignored.
