1. Overview

Configuration via Protocol (CvP) is a configuration scheme supported in Arria® V, Cyclone® V, and Stratix® V device families. The CvP configuration scheme creates separate images for the periphery and core logic. You can store the periphery image in a local configuration device and the core image in host memory, reducing system costs and increasing the security for the proprietary core image. CvP configures the FPGA fabric through the PCI Express* (PCIe) link and it is available for Endpoint variants only.
