1.2.2. Removed Features and Functions

The functions and features listed in this section have been removed from Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Version 21.4 or earlier.

Features and Functions Removed from Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Version 21.4

  • Removed simple quad-port (SQP) memory mode support for the following devices:
    • All Intel® Stratix® 10 Smart VID industrial grade OPNs (-I1V, -I2V, and –I3V)
    • All Intel® Stratix® 10 fixed voltage OPNs (-E2L, -E3X, -I2L, -I3X, and –C2L)

    If you have designs that use SQP mode and target any of these devices, you now receive an error message during synthesis that indicates SQP mode is no longer supported.

    For more details about this removal, refer to " Why are there functional errors in my simple quad port mode M20K RAM? " in the Intel FPGA Knowledge Base.
