2018.12.20 18.1
  • Updated introductory statements about GPIO usage to improve clarity.
  • Added support for 1.0 V LVCMOS I/O standard for commercial grade devices only.
  • Added link to the list of Intel® MAX® 10 develoment kits and boards.
  • Added statement to clarify that when the Intel® MAX® 10 device is blank or erased, the I/Os are tri-stated.
  • Updated the guideline for VCCIO range to improve clarity.
  • Updated the topic about the PCI clamp diode and added links to related information.
  • Updated the topic about programmable emulated differential output to improve clarity.
Date Version Changes
December 2017 2017.12.15
  • Added the U324 package for the Intel® MAX® 10 single power supply devices.
  • Updated the I/O vertical migration figure.
  • Added a topic about the different I/O banks performance.
  • Updated the GPIO Lite DDR output path figure, timing diagram, and added descriptions to improve clarity.
  • Updated the description in the guideline topic about I/O restrictions to improve clarity.
  • Updated the guideline topic about the clock and data input signal for the E144 package to improve clarity.
  • Updated the guideline topic about the ADC I/O restriction to clarify that the guidelines are geometry-based rules for design estimation purpose.
  • Removed all "Preliminary" markers.
  • Updated the topic about the PCI clamp diode to remove the sentence that mention the active serial (AS) configuration scheme. Intel® MAX® 10 devices do not support the AS configuration scheme.
