Why do I observe configuration failure in Intel® Stratix® 10 devices which require a power cycle to recover for the subsequent configuration?

Environment

  • Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition
  • BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
    Description

    When powering up the Stratix® 10 device, once the configuration process starts where the nCONFIG goes high, if there is an interruption before the CONF_DONE goes high, the configuration process will fail due to the firmware is unable to handle the interruption.  As long there is an interruption between the nCONFIG high to CONF_DONE high period, the configuration process will fail.

    An interruption is classified as one of the following: 

    a. pulsing the nCONFIG 

    b. initiating JTAG configuration

    c. bitstream corruption

    You may encounter this issue using Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software version 17.1 (including Update 1 and Update 2). This issue impacts all Stratix® 10 configuration schemes. 

     

    Resolution

    When the configuration failure occurs, you need to power cycle the Stratix® 10 device for subsequent configuration.

    This problem is fixed starting with the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software version 18.0.
