The early I/O release feature for Arria®10 is not supported in the standard release of SoC Embedded Design Suite (SoC EDS) software version 16.0.
Therefore, the peripheral_rbf_filename and core_rbf_filename fields in the SoC EDS bsp-editor tool are greyed out and replaced with a single rbf_filename field.
The early I/O release flow:
In the early I/O release flow, all I/O are configured and the HPS shared I/O and hard memory controller I/O are released so that the HPS has immediate access to them. At a later time, the FPGA fabric is configured and the FPGA I/O are released and available to the user design.
