3.2.2. Intel Agilex® 7 F-Series and I-Series Input DQS/Strobe Tree

The input DQS/strobe tree is a balanced clock network that distributes the read capture strobe (such as DQS/DQS#) from the external device to the read capture registers inside the I/Os.

The DQS/strobe tree is used for input and bidirectional pin types.

Within every bank, only certain physical pins at specific locations can drive the input DQS/strobe trees. The pin locations that can drive the input DQS/strobe trees vary, depending on the size of the group.

Table 23.  Pins Usable as Read Capture Clock / Strobe Pair
Sub-bank Lane used by Data Pins Group Size Strobe Pins 2 3
0 x8 / x9 Pin 4, 5
1 x8 / x9 Pin 16, 17
2 x8 / x9 Pin 28, 29
3 x8 / x9 Pin 40, 41
0, 1 x18 Pin 4, 5
2, 3 x18 Pin 28, 29
1, 2 x36 Pin 16, 17
0, 1, 2 x36 Pin 16, 17
1, 2, 3 x36 Pin 16, 17
0, 1, 2, 3 x36 Pin 16, 17

To target the lower/upper half of GPIO, you must use the Physical Sub-Bank ID as exemplified in the diagrams in the Intel Agilex® 7 for F-Series and I-Series I/O Sub-bank Interconnects section. For example, if the placement for x18 of sub-bank 0, 1 targets at the top sub-bank of bank 2D in Intel Agilex® 7 AGF012 and AGF014 devices, package R24B, enter Physical Sub-Bank ID = 6 at the Pin Placement tab in the PHY Lite IP parameter editor in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software.

The PHY Lite for Parallel Interfaces Intel Agilex® 7 FPGA IP for F-Series and I-Series does not permit QSF-based pin assignment. Instead, the pin placement automatically occurs based on the information from Data/Strobe Pin Placement Within Sub-Bank at the Pin Placement tab in the PHY Lite IP parameter editor in the Intel Quartus Prime software.

Figure 32. Pin Placement Example
2 For strobe pin, use either pin for single-ended and use both pins for differential.
3 In quarter rate, unused strobe pin cannot be used as data pins.
