Newer versions of the Intel® Quartus® Prime software typically include new or updated SDM features implemented in firmware. When regenerating your configuration bitstream, Intel recommends using the latest version of the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software which includes the latest firmware. You do not need to recompile your .sof to use the firmware from a newer version of the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software. You can simply regenerate your configuration bitstream with the new version of the Programming File Generator.
