VREF

Hi

 

1) Is there option to define which VREF the FPGA use  ?  (interal FPGA vref   or  external IO pin )

    If yes - where should I define it in the Quartus 

2)Do all the banks should get same vref ?

3)How can I make same vref  value when I transfer SERDES data from FPGA to other ( each FPGA locate in other board)

Hello Yishay,

 

Hope you are doing well. You can define Vref by using Pin Planner in your Quartus. There is an external VREF pin for every I/O bank, providing one external VREF source for all I/Os in the same bank. You can refer to page 40 from Stratix 10 GPIO User Guide 

 

Additional documents that you can refer to is as below: 

1. Intel Stratix 10 Device Datasheet

2. LVDS SERDES IP User Guide

 

Thank you.

Hi 

 

Thank you for your answer ,

According to the DS  there is option to choose which VREF to use ,  internal or exteranal

Hello,

 

When you click on that GUI in the Pin Planner it will show you the pin location on tab on your right. You can set your fitter location to that pin at the bottom of the Pin Planner GUI.

 

Thank you.
