Passive Parallel Synchronous Configuration

A passive parallel synchronous (PPS) configuration can be performed using an intelligent host, such as a microprocessor. The PPS configuration is useful for designers who use 8-bit memory storage to store Altera® device configuration data because of its ability to receive byte-wide configuration data every eight clock cycles.

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