Memory transfers from host memory to device memory might cause a fatal error in the Windows version of the Altera® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit Reference Platform. Starting in the 15.1 version of the Quartus Prime® Deisgn Suite, the PCI Express® (PCIe®) direct memory access (DMA) IP can only transfer up to 8 kilobytes (KB) of memory. However, Window\'s Jungo Windriver might handle a memory-mapped device (MMD) host with contiguous pinned memory that is larger than 8 KB. In addition, the MMD host is current programmed to transfer the whole pinned memory. A pinned memory size that exceeds 8 KB causes the DMA IP to fail, which leads to the fatal error in the Reference Platform.
