Changes

2018.01.04 17.0 IR3, 17.0, 17.0 Update 1, and 17.0 Update 2
  • Updated for the 17.0 software release, including Intel rebranding. Refer to Installation and Licensing, Generating CPRI Intel FPGA IP Core, and CPRI Intel FPGA IP File Structure.
  • Added Stratix 10 device family support for CPRI line bit rates of 1.2288 Gbps through 10.1376 Gbps. Because Stratix 10 device support is not available in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition releases v17.0, v17.0 Update 1, and v17.0 Update 2, this version of the Intel® FPGA IP core provides Stratix 10 device support only in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software v17.0 IR3. Auto-rate negotiation and simplex modes are not yet available for CPRI Intel® FPGA IP core variations that target a Stratix 10 device.
  • Updated speed grade support table.

    • Added Stratix 10 support.
    • Added previously missing speed grade information for Arria V GZ devices at CPRI line rate 9.8304 Gbps.
    • Removed Arria 10 support for the CPRI line rate of 0.6144 Gbps. In the 17.0.260 release, the Intel® FPGA IP core no longer supports the CPRI line rate of 0.6144 Gbps for Arria 10 devices.
    • Corrected entries for Arria V GT and Cyclone V GT devices. The previous entries listed speed grades that do not exist for these devices.
  • Updated Intel® FPGA IP core parameters.
    • Updated default value of Line bit rate parameter. Intel® Arria® 10 and Intel® Stratix® 10 devices do not support the CPRI line bit rate of 0.6144 Gbps. The new default value is the lowest CPRI line bit rate the target device family supports: 1228.8 Mbps for Intel® Arria® 10 and Intel® Stratix® 10 device families; 614.4 Mbps (as before) for all other supported device families.
    • Specified the Intel® Stratix® 10 device family supports only TX/RX Duplex operation mode in the 17.0.260 release.
    • Moved Core clock source input parameter before Transmitter local clock division factor parameter.
    • Specified that Intel® FPGA IP core variations that target an Intel® Arria® 10 or Intel® Stratix® 10 device, with Line bit rate set to the value of 4915.2 Mbps or lower, support only the value of 1 for the Transmitter local clock division factor parameter. This change is new in the 17.0.260 release.
    • Specified that Intel® FPGA IP core variations that target a device family other than the Stratix V device family, support only the value of 1 for the Number of receiver CDR reference clock(s) parameter.
    • Added new VCCR_GXB and VCCT_GXB supply voltage for the transceiver parameter. This parameter affects the Intel® FPGA IP core only if it targets an Intel® Stratix® 10 device.
    • Specified the Recovered clock source parameter is not available for Intel® Arria® 10 and Intel® Stratix® 10 devices. Intel® FPGA IP cores that target either of these device families, support only a PCS clock source for the xcvr_recovered_clk.
    • Specified the Enable single-trip delay calibration parameter is only available for Intel® Arria® 10 devices.
    • Specified the Enable line bit rate auto-negotiation parameter is not available for Intel® FPGA IP core variations that target an Intel® Stratix® 10 device.

    • Two new signals, latency_sclk and latency_sreset_n.

  • Added L1 Debug Interface section to document the signals on this interface. This information was previously missing.
  • Corrected statement that the transceiver debug signals are available if you turn on Enable debug interface in the CPRI Intel® FPGA IP core parameter editor. The name of the parameter is Enable L1 debug interfaces.
  • Corrected TX MII timing diagram in Media Independent Interface (MII) to External Ethernet Block by removing extraneous HALT symbol (/F/).
  • Clarified that external Ethernet block must assert the mii_txen signal two cycles before it presents valid data on mii_txd[3:0], to allow the Intel® FPGA IP core to insert the /J/ and /K/ nibbles in outgoing CPRI communication to indicate start-of-packet.
  • Corrected GMII example waveforms in Gigabit Media Independent Interface (GMII) to External Ethernet Block. Control symbol is /V/ not /FE/, and the value of the symbol is 0x0E, not 0xFE. Also corrected text in section where appropriate.
  • Corrected rows for register DELAY_CAL_STD_CTRL2 and below in Control and Status Register Map table. Offsets for these registers were already correct in sections for individual registers, but were listed incorrectly in the Control and Status Register Map table.
  • Clarified that the value in the startup_timer_period field of the START_UP_TIMER register at offset 0x28 is the number of cpri_coreclk clock cycles to the threshold.
  • Clarified that the value of the cal_rtd_ctrl field in the DELAY_CAL_RTD register at offset 0x80 is one-hot encoded.
  • Clarified origin of accepted HDLC and Ethernet rates.

  • Filled in field names for tx_ctrl_seq and tx_ctrl_x fields of CTRL_INDEX register at offset 0x30, which were previously missing.
  • Corrected direction of rx_ready and tx_ready output signals from reset controller. Refer to Adding the Reset Controller.
  • Added Compiling the Full Design and Programming the FPGA section in Getting Started chapter. This section provides the location of the Synopsys Design Constraints file (.sdc) generated with the Intel® FPGA IP core.
  • Removed How to Contact and Typographic Conventions sections.
  • Removed Differences Between CPRI Intel® FPGA IP Core and CPRI Intel® FPGA IP Core appendix. The CPRI Intel® FPGA IP core is not available for recent versions of the Intel® Quartus® Prime software.
  • Removed Installation and Licensing Features section, which described the OpenCore Plus feature. Because the CPRI Intel® FPGA IP core is available from the SSLC only with a license, this feature is not relevant.
  • Added new section with links to older published versions of this user guide. If a correction was published for the same software version, only the corrected version is available. Refer to User Guide Archives.
  • Fixed assorted typos and minor errors.
