7.2. Intel® Stratix® 10 Configuration Architecture Overview
Intel® Stratix® 10 devices employ a new configuration architecture. The Secure Device Manager (SDM), a dedicated hard processor, controls and monitors all aspects of device configuration from device power-on reset. This configuration architecture differs from previous Intel FPGA device families where state machines control configuration.
There are important differences between Intel® Stratix® 10 and previous device families with respect to available configuration modes, configuration pin behavior, and connection guidelines. In addition, the bitstream format is different. Knowing about these differences and how these pins behave can help you understand and debug configuration issues.
