Are the Programmer Object Files (.pof) for the MAX 9000 device family compatible? (MAX 9000, and MAX 9000A)


Description Using a pre-existing programming file generated for one device to program another device within the same family is possible in many cases. Please see the details below.

First, the target device must be of the same package and density as the device for which the original programming file was generated.

In addition, when the target device has a greater feature set then the device for which the programming file was created, the Altera software will automatically disable the superset features.

Below is a list of some programming file compatibilities. Although the cross-programming options outlined below are supported, Altera recommends you recompile your source files and generate a new programming file whenever possible such that timing can be verified in the new target device. Please contact the Altera Hotline concerning any combinations not represented here.

You can program a MAX 9000A device with a MAX 9000 POF.
