Why does my Intel® Stratix® 10 design fail to boot / read from QSPI when using the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Software version 21.1 or 21.2 to create full flash images such as .JIC / .RPD files?


  • Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition

    Critical Issue


    Due to a problem in the Quartus® Programming File Generator in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Software version 21.1, and 21.2,   block partitions containing raw data files (.hex, .bin, .puf or .wkey) may be incorrectly re-sized in full flash images (.JIC / .RPD files).

    This problem may result in run-time boot failures,  data corruption,  or QSPI corruption when Intel® Stratix® 10 Hard Processor System Remote System Update (RSU) flows are used to update flash content. 


    Patch 0.14 for the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Software version 21.2 is available to fix this problem.  

     1. Download and install the patch from the relevant link below

    2. Re-Create the Flash image clean,  re-entering all partition data and sizing.

    3. Re-program your QSPI flash using the new .JIC / .rpd file


    This problem is fixed starting with the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software version 21.3.
