Device Configuration - Support Center

Welcome to the Device Configuration Support Center!

Here you will find information on how to select, design, and implement configuration schemes and features. There are also guidelines on how to bring up your system and debug the configuration links. This page is organized into categories that align with a configuration system design flow from start to finish.

Enjoy your journey!

  1. The maximum clock rate and maximum data rate are preliminary.
  2. Supported configuration from EPCQ-L devices only.
  3. The maximum clock rate when using an external configuration clock source is 133 MHz. The maximum clock rate reduces if you use the internal oscillator as the configuration clock source, during SmartVID operation, or when the device is in user mode.
  4. You can perform partial reconfiguration after the device is fully configured. For more information, refer to the Partial Reconfiguration User Guide.
  5. Partial configuration can be performed only when it is configured as internal host.
  6. Supported at a maximum clock rate of 100 MHz.
  7. Supply voltage for internal logic, VCCINT = 1.0 V
  8. Supply voltage for internal logic, VCCINT = 1.2 V
  9. Supply voltage for internal logic, VCCINT = 1.2 V. Cyclone 10 LP 1.2 V core voltage devices support 133 MHz DCLK fMAX for 10CL006, 10CL010, 10CL016, 10CL025, and 10CL040 only.
  10. RSU - remote system update
  11. SEU - single event upset
  12. CvP - Configuration via Protocol
  13. PFL - parallel flash loader
