Document Table of Contents Setting Max Retry Parameter

The max retry parameter specifies how many times the application and factory images are tried when configuration failures occur.
  • The default value is one, which means each image is tried only once.
  • The maximum possible value is three, which means each image can be tried up to three times.

The max retry parameter is stored in the decision firmware data area. The decision firmware data can also be updated by a decision firmware update image, or by a combined application image.

The max retry parameter is specified for the hardware project used to create the factory image, from the Quartus® Prime GUI by navigating to Assignments > Device > Device and Pin Options > Configuration and selecting the value for the Remote System Update MAX_RETRY count field.

You can also specify the parameter directly by editing the project Quartus® Prime settings file (.qsf) and adding the following line or changing the value if it is already there:
set_global_assignment -name RSU_MAX_RETRY_COUNT 3
