The 3.3-V LVTTL and 3.3-V LVCMOS standards support VCCIO connected to 3.3 V, 3.0 V, or 2.5 V for input operation on Arria® V and Stratix® V device families.
In versions 11.0 and 11.1 of the Quartus® II software, assigning a pin with a standard that requires VCCIO to be connected to 2.5 V (such as 2.5 V output) and a 3.3-V LVCMOS/LVTTL input will lead to a fitter error.
Make an I/O standard assignment of 2.5 V to inputs that require the 3.3-V LVCMOS/LVTTL standards.
The 2.5 V standard input specifications are the same as the 3.3-V specifcations except that Vil is 0.7 V rather than 0.8 V. See the following device datasheets for more information on input voltage thresholds:
- DC and Switching Characteristics for Stratix V Devices (PDF)
- Device Datasheet for Arria V Devices (PDF)
This problem will be fixed in a future version of the Quartus II software.
