- 6.1.1. Generating the Synthesis HDL files for Intel® FPGA P-Tile Avalon Streaming (Avalon-ST) for PCIe* Express
22.214.171.124. For CvP Initialization Mode
To meet the 120 ms wake-up time requirement for the PCIe* Hard IP in CvP initialization mode, you need to use periphery image because the configuration time for periphery image is significantly less than the full FPGA configuration time. You must use the Active Serial x4 (fast mode) configuration scheme for the periphery image configuration.
To ensure successful configuration, all POR-monitored power supplies must ramp up monotonically to the operating range within the 10 ms ramp-up time. The PERST# signal indicates when the FPGA power supplies are within their specified voltage tolerances and the REFCLK is stable1. The embedded hard reset controller triggers after the internal status signal indicates that the periphery image has been loaded. This reset does not trigger off of PERST#. For CvP Initialization mode, the PCIe* link supports the FPGA core image configuration and subsequent PCIe* applications in user mode.
|Timing Sequence||Timing Range (ms)||Description|
|a||1.1-6.9||FPGA POR delay + bootup sequence until nstatus high (AS Fast Mode)|
|b||80-100||Maximum time from the FPGA power up to the end of periphery configuration in CvP initialization mode (before transceiver calibration)|
|c||0-20||Minimum calibration time before PERST# is deasserted.
In Intel® Agilex™ P-tile devices, you don't need to perform transceiver calibration before PERST# is deasserted.
|d||60||Minimum transceiver calibration window|
|e||100||Minimum PERST# signal active from the host|
|f||120||Maximum time from the FPGA power up to the end of periphery configuration in CvP initialization mode (include transceiver calibration)|
|g||100||Maximum time PCIe* device must enter L0 after PERST# is deasserted
Note: 100 ms timing range is only applicable to PCIe* PCIe* 1.0/ PCIe* 2.0. PCIe* 3.0 does not need to meet 100 ms timing requirement.
|h||10||Maximum ramp-up time requirement for all POR-monitored power supplies in the FPGA to reach their respective operating range|
|i||70-90||Periphery image loading time from nSTATUS to CONF_DONE.|
The periphery configuration time may vary depending on your configuration system setup and settings.
- Set the VID mode of operation to PMBus Master mode
- Use Intersil ISL68137 regulator to regulate the PMBus
- Set configuration clock source to OSC_CLK_1 with 125 MHz
- No advanced security features were enabled
- For AS x4 configuration mode, set the AS_CLK to 166 Mhz. Use a Micron device with a 2 Gb density range QSPI flash memory.
