1.11. P-Tile IP for PCI Express IP Cores v2.0.0

IP versions are the same as the Intel Quartus Prime Design Suite software versions up to v19.1. From Intel Quartus Prime Design Suite software version 19.2 or later, IPs have a new IP versioning scheme.

The IP version (X.Y.Z) number may change from one Intel® Quartus® Prime software version to another. A change in:
  • X indicates a major revision of the IP. If you update your Intel Quartus Prime software, you must regenerate the IP.
  • Y indicates the IP includes new features. Regenerate your IP to include these new features.
  • Z indicates the IP includes minor changes. Regenerate your IP to include these changes.

Intel® Quartus® Prime Version Description Impact
20.1 The VirtIO feature has timing issues in this release of Intel® Quartus® Prime. Only compilation and simulation are supported for the VirtIO feature in this release.
The Eye Plot feature in the Debug Toolkit is only available for Channel 0. Eye Plot support for Channels other than Channel 0 may be available in a future release of Intel® Quartus® Prime.
The P-Tile Avalon-ST and Avalon-MM IPs for PCIe only support VCS for design example simulation in this release. Use VCS for design example simulation in the 20.1 release of Intel® Quartus® Prime. Other simulators may be supported in a future release.
The P-Tile Avalon-ST and Avalon-MM IPs for PCIe do not support parallel PIPE simulations in this release. Only Serial data interface simulations are supported in the 20.1 release of Intel® Quartus® Prime, which results in longer simulation time. Parallel PIPE simulations may be supported in a future release.
The independent pin_perst option is only available in the P-Tile Avalon-ST IP in this release. For guidelines on implementing two independent pin_perst, contact Factory Applications.
The P-Tile BFM is not supported in this release. It may be available in a future release. Use a third-party BFM to simulate the P-Tile design examples.
Parity is supported in this release. However, it is not supported when the Adapter is enabled. Configurations with the Adapter enabled (i.e., Gen4 x8, 512-bit and Gen4 x4 256-bit) do not have parity support.
