Fast Passive Parallel Configuration

To meet the continuously increasing demand for faster configuration times, Altera® devices offer fast passive parallel (FPP) configuration with different data bus widths: 8 bit data width (FPP x8), 16 bit data width (FPP x16), and 32 bit data width (FPP x32). The FPP x16 and FPP x32 schemes are supported only in Stratix® V devices.

For more information, refer to the configuration chapter of the relevant Altera device in the Configuration Handbook.
