1. Executing SDM Commands via JTAG Interface

This application note provides information on using the System Console packet service to send Secure Device Manager (SDM) commands from System Console to the SDM, and to read the response from the SDM via the JTAG interface. Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software provides the System Console as a debugging tool using JTAG. When you send an SDM command using the packet service, the System Console translates the command into a lower level JTAG instruction and drives the JTAG pins accordingly.

This document serves as an extension to the Mailbox Client Intel® FPGA IP User Guide, which provides details on the device family support, and SDM commands and responses. The document provides additional guidance on how to execute SDM commands via the JTAG interface.
