Why do I observe Avalon-ST reconfiguration failure when I upgrade the Intel® Stratix® 10 device configuration bitstream with a newer Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro software version?


If you reconfigure an Intel® Stratix® 10 device with a configuration bitstream generated by a different or newer Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro software version, and if there is data corruption in the first 256kB of the bitstream, the reconfiguration will fail. In addition, there is a small chance that a subsequent reconfiguration with a good bitstream will not be successful.

This issue impacts AVSTx8, x16 and x32 configuration schemes. 



Reconfigure the Intel Stratix 10 device with JTAG configuration. If JTAG configuration cannot be used, then power cycle the device and configure the Intel Stratix 10 device with a known good bitstream.

This issue is scheduled be fixed in a future version of the Intel Quartus Prime Pro software.
