HDMI HDCP

Hi,

 

I have a question about HDMI IP and HDCP support.

 

I have purchased the Cyclone 10 dev board and the Bitec HDMI daughter card. Tried the demo, and it looks fine.

 

I was aware that the HDCP IP is under a separate license, and we have to purchase this. But then I noticed in the signal description table in HDMI IP documentation that HDCP IP is only supported on Arria, Agilex, and Stratus families, not Cyclone 10.

 

Is it true that HDCP can not be used on Cyclone 10 devices? Even though the HDMI IP is otherwise running fine?

 

BR, Madis

Hi Madis,


The list of cyclone devices information is inside the HDCP patch readme.txt file.

Once you purchase the HDCP patch, there will be a readme.txt file that is shipped together with the patch.


Based on Quartus Prime Pro 21.1 release, patch v1.0a of the HDCP IP (is to enable the HDCP over HDMI 2.1/HDMI 2.0/DisplayPort 1.4.)


It contain the following new change compared to HDCP Quartus version 20.4:

1. Enable HDCP Key Management feature support. Please refer to the HDCP Key Management User Guide for more details.

2. Enable HDCP over HDMI 2.1 support on Arria 10 Family.

3. Enable HDCP over HDMI 2.0 support on Cyclone 10 Family.


Hope this answers your question.

Thank you.


Best Regards,

Hi Madis,


Thank you for reaching out.

Yes you are right, HDCP is under a separate licensing.


Regarding your question, the HDCP is supported as an external patch and only enable on certain release of Cyclone 10.

You can check this in the readme.txt file that comes with the HDCP patch included in the zip file.


May I clarify which Quartus release that you are using?


Thank you.
