Passive Parallel Asynchronous Configuration

During PPA configuration, data is transferred from a configuration device, flash memory, or other storage device to the Altera® device on the DATA[7..0] pins. This configuration scheme is asynchronous, so control signals regulate the configuration cycle.

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

Configuration Method

  • Using an intelligent host such as microprocessor or CPLD
