When using AVST (x8/x16/x32) configuration mode in Intel Stratix® 10 devices, you may find that, after configuring the Stratix 10 with one version of bitstream successfully, reconfiguring with a bitstream generated by a different version of the Intel Quartus® Prime Pro software may fail, unless you power cycle the board.
Device Family: Intel® Stratix® 10
Intel Software: Quartus Prime Pro
For successful reconfiguration without a power cycle, the initial boot bitstream needs to match the updated bitstream.
This issue will be resolved in a future release of the Quartus Prime Pro software.
