If a release note is not available for a specific IP core
version, the IP core has no changes in that version. Information on the latest update
releases is in the Intel Quartus Prime Design Suite Update Release
This feature adds support for
modification of the TX scrambler seed for Arria 10 variations. If your
design includes multiple IP cores, you should ensure they have different
TX scrambler seed values. Previously this functionality was not
available for Arria 10 variations.
starting in the IP core version 15.0, you must refrain from
modifying the RTL parameter SCRAM_CONST in Stratix V and Arria V GZ variations,
and use the new parameter in the Parameter Editor
The Quartus II software v14.1 requires that
you specify a device if your IP core targets the Arria 10 device family. If you
do not specify your target Arria 10 device, the IP Upgrade tool insists that
your IP core requires upgrade, but does not clarify the reason.
IYou must ensure that you specify a device for
your v13.1 Arria 10 Edition or v14.0 Arria 10 Edition IP core variation and
regenerate it in the Quartus II software v14.1.
New required frequency for input clock signals
rx_usr_clk is 250 MHz, and the two clocks must be
driven at the same frequency. If you provide a clock with a different
frequency, it must be in the range of 200 MHz to 300 MHz, and you must modify
the new hidden (RTL) parameter
TX_USR_CLK_MHZ to the new value in the files
for synthesis and
Upgraded to support the new IP Catalog. For
more information about the IP Catalog, refer to

Introduction to Altera IP Cores.
Improved resource utilization by 20% and
latency by 55%.
Table 7. Version 13.1 Arria 10 Edition December 2013
Added support for Arria 10 devices. IP core variations that
target an Arria 10 device have additional interfaces and design requirements.
