IP: Altera S10 Mailbox Client

Why does the Mailbox Client Intel® FPGA IP not function correctly when connected to an asynchronous reset?

Description

In Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software versions 19.4 and earlier, you may find that the Mailbox Client Intel FPGA IP does not function correctly when connected to an asynchronous reset including the output of the Reset Release Intel® FPGA IP when using Intel® Stratix® 10 devices.

Workaround/Fix

To work around this, a reset synchronizer should be used with the Mailbox Client Intel FPGA IP . This can be implemented using the Reset Bridge IP available in Platform Designer. This problem is fixed starting with Intel Quartus Prime Pro Edition software version 20.1.
