Does Intel® Stratix® 10 support Serial Vector File (SVF) file for configuration? 

Description

Yes. Intel® Stratix® 10 support Serial Vector File (SVF) file for configuration in Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro.

However, SVF file support will be discontinued in future version.

For SDM-based devices, SVF file configuration could take more than 2 minutes to be completed compare to JTAG configuration with Intel® Quartus® Programmer or JAM/JBC method that just needs a few seconds to be completed.

Thus, it is not realistic to use SVF file to configure as it takes a longer time.

Workaround/Fix

To work around this problem, migrate to JAM/JBC format instead of SVF. The SVF support will be removed in Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro future release.
