Why do I see the SmartVID (-V) graded Intel® Stratix® 10 devices not responding to the master power management controller during Partial Reconfiguration?

Description

When usng Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro software version 18.0, if the SmartVID (-V) graded Intel® Stratix® 10 devices is configured in PMBus slave mode, the Intel Stratix 10 device will not respond to any PMBus commands during Partial Reconfiguration process. If the master power management controller queries the Intel Stratix 10 device for a voltage update during Partial Reconfiguration, the Intel Stratix 10 device will not respond.

Workaround/Fix

Once the Partial Reconfiguration process is complete, the Intel Stratix 10 device will respond to the queries again. The master power management controller needs to re-issue the queries until it gets a response.

This iproblem is scheduled to be fixed ina a future version of the Intel Quartus® Prime Pro software.
