Why does the external memory interface calibration hang after a CvP update when using the DDR3, DDR2 or LPDDR2 UniPHY hard memory controller?

Environment

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

    Due to a problem in the Quartus® II software, when configuring with an SOF file through the Configuration via Protocol (CvP) method with a design that includes the UniPHY hard memory controller, you may observe that calibration fails after the CvP update occurs. The external memory interface calibration status signals local_cal_fail and local_cal_success never become asserted.

    This issue occurs because the content of the M20K/M10K RAM memory used for the calibration process has been corrupted after the CvP update occurred.

    Resolution Contact Altera for details of the workaround.
