3.1.7.5.4. Defining New CFI Flash Memory Device

The PFL II IP core supports Intel® - and AMD-compatible flash memory devices. In addition to the supported flash memory devices, you can define the new Intel® - or AMD-compatible CFI flash memory device in the PFL II-supported flash database using the Define New CFI Flash Device function.

To add a new CFI flash memory device to the database or update a CFI flash memory in the database, follow these steps:

  1. In the Programmer window, on the Edit menu, select Define New CFI Flash Device. The following table lists the three functions available in the Define CFI Flash Device window.
    Table 26.  Functions of the Define CFI Flash Device Feature

    New Add a new Intel® - or AMD-compatible CFI flash memory device into the PFL II-supported flash database.
    Edit Edit the parameters of the newly added Intel® - or AMD-compatible CFI flash memory device in the PFL II-supported flash database.
    Remove Remove the newly added Intel® - or AMD-compatible CFI flash memory device from the PFL II-supported flash database.
  2. To add a new CFI flash memory device or edit the parameters of the newly added CFI flash memory device, select New or Edit. The New CFI Flash Device dialog box appears.
  3. In the New CFI Flash Device dialog box, specify or update the parameters of the new flash memory device. You can obtain the values for these parameters from the data sheet of the flash memory device manufacturer.

    Flash device is Intel® compatible Turn on the option if the CFI flash is Intel® compatible
    Typical word programming time Typical word programming time value in µs unit
    Maximum word programming time Maximum word programming time value in µs unit
    Typical buffer programming time Typical buffer programming time value in µs unit
    Maximum buffer programming time Maximum buffer programming time value in µs unit
    Note: You must specify either the word programming time parameters, buffer programming time parameters, or both. Do not leave both programming time parameters with the default value of zero.
  4. Click OK to save the parameter settings.
  5. After you add, update, or remove the new CFI flash memory device, click OK.

The Windows registry stores user flash information. Consequently, you must have system administrator privileges to store the parameters in the Define New CFI Flash Device window in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Programmer.
