1   Select a configuration scheme to plan companion devices and board connections.

Intel® Agilex™ devices offer several configuration schemes.

You can enable any specific configuration scheme by driving the Intel® Agilex™ device MSEL pins to specific values on the board.

Active Serial (AS) configuration scheme uses a serial configuration device, JTAG configuration scheme uses a download cable, and Avalon Streaming (AvST) configuration scheme uses an external controller (for example, MAX (MAX II, MAX V, Intel MAX 10) devices or a microcontroller).
Warning: If you use AVSTx16 or x32 configuration scheme, do not use the I/O pins from bank 3A with pin index [91..95], you need to leave these pins unconnected on the board, you may refer to device pin out files to identify the exact pin location
