What EMIF Toolkit features are not supported for Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGAs in Intel Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software?

Description

In the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software versions 17.1 and newer (including version 19.1), the following features of the External Memory Interface Toolkit are not fully verified to work with the Intel Stratix® 10 FPGAs:

  • Efficiency Monitor
  • Traffic Generator 2.0
  • Driver Margining
  • Calibrate Termination
  • Design Link (when applying the “Link Project to Device” command). This intermittent issue may cause the External Memory Interface Toolkit to be unresponsive. In this case, close and restart the External Memory Interface Toolkit, and the Design Link will likely pass on the next try.

In addition, the following Intel Stratix 10 external memory configurations are not fully verified to work with the External Memory Interface Toolkit in the Intel Quartus Prime Pro Edition software version 17.1 and newer (including version 19.1):

  • Interfaces with 4 or more ranks
  • Designs with multiple interfaces in an I/O column

Workaround/Fix

These External Memory Interface Toolkit features are scheduled to support Intel Stratix 10 FPGAs in a future release of the Intel Quartus Prime software.
