4.5.1. Migrating Your ALTLVDS_TX and ALTLVDS_RX IP Cores

To migrate your ALTLVDS_TX and ALTLVDS_RX IP cores to the LVDS SERDES Intel® FPGA IP, follow these steps:

  1. Open your ALTLVDS_TX or ALTLVDS_RX core in the IP parameter editor.
  2. In the Currently selected device family, select Stratix 10.
  3. Click Finish to open the LVDS SERDES IP core parameter editor. The parameter editor configures the LVDS SERDES IP core settings similar to the ALTLVDS_TX or ALTLVDS_RX IP core settings.
  4. If there are any incompatible settings between the two IP cores, select new supported settings.
  5. Click Finish to regenerate the IP core.
  6. Replace your ALTLVDS_TX or ALTLVDS_RX IP core instantiation in RTL with the LVDS SERDES IP core.
Note: The LVDS SERDES IP core port names may not match the ALTLVDS_TX or ALTLVDS_RX IP core port names. Therefore, simply changing the IP core name in the instantiation may not be sufficient.
