1   Consider designing your system to support power cycling the device to ensure error recovery under all reconfiguration circumstances.

Intel® Stratix® 10 devices use the triple-redundant processors in the SDM to control configuration. To ensure error recovery under all reconfiguration circumstances, Intel recommends designing your system to support power cycling the device if needed. Generally, asserting nCONFIG provides adequate error recovery. If not, you may need to perform a power cycle. A power cycle completely re-initializes the device, samples MSEL, reads the fuses, and runs the SDM BootROM code. Follow the device power up and power down sequences during the power cycle.
