Arria 10 Dev Kit - DDR4 calibration failed

Hi everyone, 

 

I can't get the DDR4 module that comes with the Arria 10 Dev Kit to work. When I configure the DDR4 design using BTS, I get "DDR4 calibration failed, test won't work" error message. All other examples working fine (Flash/GPIO, FMC loopback and DDR3). Is there any configuration / setting that I am not ware of? 

 

Thanks

If DDR3 works, DDR4 should work. Have you swapped out the memory in the Hi/Lo port?

Yes, I did swap out the memory module.

BTS should work out of the box. If it's not, I'd contact Intel for a replacement.

Check if the following setting is ON: 

 

set_global_assignment -name RELEASE_CLEARS_BEFORE_TRI_STATES ON 

 

If it is as shown above, then you need to change it to OFF and then try again 

 

set_global_assignment -name RELEASE_CLEARS_BEFORE_TRI_STATES OFF
