3.6. Plan for Device Programming

You must plan for the devices and hardware that you require for programming or configuration of the device. Comprehensive system planning includes determining what companion devices, if any, your system requires. Your programming or configuration method also impacts the board layout planning.
For example, some programming options require a JTAG interface connection, requiring a JTAG chain on the board.

You can define a configuration scheme on the Configuration tab of the Device and Pin Options dialog box. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software uses the settings for the configuration scheme, configuration device, and configuration device voltage to enable the appropriate dual purpose pins as regular I/O pins after you complete configuration. The Intel® Quartus® Prime software performs voltage compatibility checks of those pins during compilation of your design.
