What will happen if unused Stratix II GX transceiver pins are floating?

Environment

  • Stratix® II GX FPGA
  • Quartus® II Subscription Edition
  • BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
    Description

    If unused Stratix II GX® transceiver pins are left floating, the capacitance of the trace normally keeps the line low. However, for optimal noise rejection and power performance, Altera® recommends that you tie unused pins in accordance with the Stratix II GX Pin Connections Guidelines (PDF).
