IP: Avalon-ST Stratix 10 Hard IP for PCI Express, Avalon-MM Stratix 10 Hard IP for PCI Express

Why does my OS freeze when using the Stratix 10 PCIe Hard IP core?


Due to a problem with the Quartus® Prime Pro software version 17.1, you may see your operating system freeze on boot or experience no PCIe* linkup, when using the Stratix® 10 GX PCIe Hard IP core.

This is due to an improper setting in the Quartus software. This issue affects Stratix 10 GX devices with ES1 L-Tiles, ES2 L-Tiles, or ES H-Tiles.


Using the links below, install patch 0.02 on top of Quartus Prime Pro 17.1. Regenerate the Stratix 10 PCIe Hard IP variant and recompile your design.
