Are there any problems with transceiver reduced MIF dynamic reconfiguration in Stratix IV and Arria II devices?

Environment

  • Stratix® IV GX FPGA
  • Stratix® IV GT FPGA
  • Arria® II GX FPGA
BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Description

Yes, there is a problem with transceiver reduced MIF dynamic reconfiguration in Stratix®  IV and Arria®  II devices when using Quartus®  II Software Version 9.1-SP1 and 9.1-SP2.

When using reduced MIF dynamic reconfiguration, and using the 'channel reconfiguration with transmitter PLL select' mode (reconfig_mode_sel = 110), an incorrect tx_dataout and tx_clkout may be produced.

To work around this problem use the 'channel and CMU PLL reconfiguration' (reconfig_mode_sel = 101) mode.

This problem affects simulation and hardware.

This problem will be fixed in a future version of the Quartus II Software.
