Partially Reconfiguring a Design on Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Board
|Intel® Quartus® Prime Design Suite 20.3|
The partial reconfiguration (PR) feature allows you to reconfigure a portion of the FPGA dynamically, while the remaining FPGA design continues to function. You can create multiple personas for a particular region in your design, without impacting operation in areas outside this region. This methodology is effective in systems where multiple functions time-share the same FPGA device resources. The current version of the software introduces a new and simplified compilation flow for partial reconfiguration.
- Allows run-time design reconfiguration
- Increases scalability of the design
- Reduces system down-time
- Supports dynamic time-multiplexing functions in the design
- Lowers cost and power consumption through efficient use of board space
Implementation of this reference design requires basic familiarity with the Intel® Quartus® Prime FPGA implementation flow and knowledge of the primary Intel® Quartus® Prime project files. This tutorial uses the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA development board on the bench, outside of the PCIe* slot in your workstation.
