Only Cyclone IV E devices support both the active parallel (AP) and active serial (AS) configuration scheme for remote system upgrade. Intel® Cyclone® 10 LP and other Cyclone IV devices support only the AS configuration scheme for remote system upgrade.

When using with EPCS or EPCQ devices, the remote update mode allows a configuration space to start at any flash sector boundary, allowing a maximum of 128 pages in the EPCS64 device and 32 pages in the EPCS16 device, in which the minimum size of each page is 512 Kb. Additionally, the remote update mode features a user watchdog timer that can detect functional errors in an application configuration.
