Document Table of Contents Updating the SDM Firmware

When you generate a configuration bitstream using the File > Programming File Generator menu item, the bitstream assembler adds all firmware (including the SDM firmware) that matches the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Release to the bitstream generated from the .sof.

Depending on the configuration scheme you specify the resulting file can be in any of the following formats:

  • Raw Binary File, .rbf
  • Programmer Object File, .pof
  • JTAG Indirect Configuration, .jic
  • Raw Programming Data, .rpd
  • Jam*Standard Test and Programming Language (STAPL) STAPL, .jam
  • Jam* Byte Code, .jbc

For more information about the output file types, refer to the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition User Guide: Programmer.

Newer versions of the Intel® Quartus® Prime software typically include new or updated SDM features implemented in firmware. When regenerating your configuration bitstream, Intel recommends using the latest version of the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software which includes the latest firmware. You do not need to recompile your .sof to use the firmware from a newer version of the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software. You can simply regenerate your configuration bitstream with the new version of the Programming File Generator.
