JESD204B IP core license

Dear Expert

I just get a project using Arria V to implement JESD204B.  I have two questions. 

1. the developing tools, Arria V device only supported by Quartus Standard edition.  is that true?

2. if I purchase a Standard edition and a TSW14J56EVM board, do I need to buy the JESD204B IP core license? how much is it?

I try to search from the Intel website, it is like searching for a needle in a haystack.

Thank god we have this community, appreciate your input.

David

I don't think I have heard any feedback yet. I have been trying to figure out how to purchase a Jesd204B license, I am helping someone investigate a TI demo board called TSW14J56 which uses Altera's chip and IP core.  it doesn't like I am purchasing something at Amazon. even I know what I want to buy, but I couldn't figure out how to buy it, even couldn't figure out who to contact, what number to call. it is sad that there isn't Altera anymore. 

Here is what I have done. search JESD204B, you will find a page, https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/products/intellectual-property/ip/interface-pro...

 

you will find 3 links 

Contact Intel Sales, User Guide, and IP Evaluation and Purchase. 

the only link I can understand is the User Guide. 

I guess the web designer doesn't know why to link the button, so they just link it to the Intel main web page. 

by the way, the IP Evaluation and Purchase will lead you to a page https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/programmable/support/support-resources/download/megacore-ip....

it is amazing if you click the link of Self-service licensing center or Intel FPGA representative. 

I feel a little frustrated. Intel is too big to take care of the small user, but Altera is too big to be ignored. 

Best Regards,

David

Hi David,

1. the developing tools, Arria V device only supported by Quartus Standard edition. is that true?
To answer your question, yes, it is true.
You can refer to this link :
https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/software/programmable/quartus-prime/download.html 

2. if I purchase a Standard edition and a TSW14J56EVM board, do I need to buy the JESD204B IP core license? how much is it?
Generally yes, you need to have JESD IP but for TSW14J56EVM board, I will suggest you to refer back to the board developer because they more expert to answer .
For Intel product purchase and pricing, kindly contact a Distributor from the list at our website https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/company-overview/contact-us.html

I hope my answer address your issue, but if you have any more concern or questions, you can let me know. I am happy to help.

Thank you for your kind reply, I am working on a project that uses the Texas Instruments TSW14J56 evaluation board, with an ArriaV 5AGZME1EH29(ON schematic). 
 
When I open the Qar file provided by TI, the latest Quartus Prime Standard Edition(20.1.1) said 
 
Warning (13177): Your design targets the device family "Arria V GZ". The specified family is not a valid device family, is not installed, or is not supported in this version of the Quartus Prime software. If you restored a project from an archived version, your project was successfully restored, but you still must specify or install a supported device family.
when I run to install the device, it says Arria V has been installed. ( attached the screen capture)
 
I don't think I can change the device to compile the Qar file, because it is installed on the demo board. 
 
please give me suggestions to solve this problem, 
 
 
I used to be a loyal Altera user for many years but didn't use it in recent years. 
 
appreciate your help.

I notice that there is a reminder to update the IP components.
I clicked it and choose the automatic upgrade, 
the process will stick at 4% forever. 
assume after upgrade the IP, the Quartus can handle the "Arria V GZ". I need some help to complete the IP upgrading process. 
 
 
Thank you

Sorry to bother you, I got a response from the TI forum, I need to use an old version of Quartus like 14.0. 

it works now, thank you.
